2017 Election: Where the Candidates Stand

Monday, September 11, 2017

In September 2017 we sent our Public Realm Bill of Rights for New York City to candidates running for elected office across the city, and asked for their responses to four questions about the bill: Which article of the Public Realm Bill of Rights for NYC speaks to you the most, and why? What is your favorite park or open space in your district? How can it be improved and why? What do you consider to be the most pressing park or open space need in your community, and what is your plan to address it? 

Their answers show what open space issues the candidates see as most pressing, and how they think those issues should be addressed. We're sharing their responses here so that voters can make an informed choice when they cast their ballots in the primary election on Tuesday, September 12th, and again in the general election on Tuesday, November 7th.
