Our District 32 Key Issues

I am the Climate Resiliency Candidate

Kaled’s vision for District 32 is to enhance the quality of life in our community, continually ensuring that this a place where people want to live, work, and conduct business. For more than 25 years, Kaled’s parents co-owned a small business here. In addition to making their living here, this is the community where they chose to raise their children. Kaled chose to stay here and raise his children, making them the third generation of our family to call this community home.

New York City is the greatest city in the world. District 32 is just as much a part of that greatness as any other district. Our residents are highly educated, hard-working, and culturally diverse. Despite all of that, we are facing ever-widening disparities in income, and a lack of resources that we need to thrive as a community. Our residents are making do with less and are trying to meet and overcome life’s challenges while having to deal with social, economic, and environmental challenges facing the city and the nation. This community needs a strong advocate to guide it through these unpredictable times. We must consider changes that may greatly affect the amount of land we occupy; our ability to conserve open space; modes of transportation; and our need for updated and expanded infrastructure.

As a hard-working New Yorker, and a proud member of District 37 local 375, Kaled spent a great deal of time advocating for his neighbors while working on major projects such as the Jamaica Bay watershed protection plan, the climate change adaptation and mitigation plan, and while managing projects such as the restoration of the Penn and Fountain Ave Landfill, and the City Green Infrastructure and water quality initiative. The path to enhancing our community depends on the following:

  • Working on resiliency by shifting policies to prepare for the potential shocks, such as natural or technological disaster; Promoting growth while protecting valued aspects of the community
  • Coordinating land use regulation, transportation, utilities, and other government functions and services
  • Assessing previous policies, identifying errors or weaknesses, and changing direction as needed
  • Protecting property values, which for most of us, represents our largest investment
  • Creating a healthy business climate that will attract investments and sustain economic growth, and
  • Ensuring the availability of adequate and affordable housing.

Together, we will work on the partnerships and solutions required to move forward the collective and coordinated actions of many individuals and organizations over time that aspires to improve the quality of life for all.

New York City’s Green New Deal

In April 2019, Mayor de Blasio announced New York City’s Green New Deal, an ambitious $14 billion plan to attack global warming. In combination with actions taken prior to this administration, New York City will reach a total emissions reduction of 40% from a 2005 baseline by 2030.

QueensWay

An abandoned railway that runs through Queens, this 3.5-mile stretch of rail line (former LIRR Rockaway Beach Branch) has sat decaying for nearly 60 years, where illegal drugs and dumping cause severe safety and environmental issues to nearby residents.

Lessons for NYC in Energy Resilience from Texas

In February, 2021, Texas suffered massive electricity outages as its infrastructure failed all across the state. Its low resilience infrastructure was due in part to a lack of utility motivation to invest in resilience and plan for the future. NYC can learn from Texas’ lessons, and its own history with outages caused by Sandy and Isaias, to begin pursuing a more robust, resilient, and equitable power system.

MTA Pollution in New York City

In 2021, a study from New York University Langone Health showed that the transit system in NYC exposes riders to the highest levels of inhaled pollutants among any other metropolitan subways in the Northeastern United States.
