THE ISSUES

Now more than ever, we need strong, progressive leadership to fight for working families. Let’s build a movement together, and a Brooklyn we can all afford to live in.

Housing is a
human right

Brian helped secure funding for affordable housing initiatives at the nonprofit Nazareth Housing, and at the Council, he would fight for rent-to-own programs so residents can develop the resources to become homeowners.

Holding the MTA
Accountable

In the City Council, Brian will demand fair fares for public transportation and more bike lanes and CitiBikes to better serve our communities. Brian also supports the DOTs proposal for partial street closures on Franklin Avenue as well as on Remsen Avenue to install pedestrian plazas.

Immigrants are
the fabric of our
communitieS

Raised by a single Jamaican mother, Brian knows the struggles of raising families in the city and the obstacles that immigrants face on a daily basis. Brian will always defend DACA, stand against ICE, and work to ensure access to legal counsel and public services. He will go further and demand that all immigrants receive permanent, not just temporary, protection.

Environmental
issues are
economic and racial
justice issues

In the City Council, Brian will demand fair fares for public transportation and more bike lanes and CitiBikes to better serve our communities. Brian also supports the DOTs proposal for partial street closures on Franklin Avenue as well as on Remsen Avenue to install pedestrian plazas.

Universal
healthcare
is a human righT

No one should be denied access to healthcare because they cannot afford it. Brian will fight to create a Universal Healthcare system that covers every person, regardless of citizenship, immigration, health, or employment status.

Caring for
our Seniors

Brian helps care for his elderly family members and understand the day- today issues our Seniors face. As your Council Member, Brian would increase funding for senior services and centers and ease Senior Citizens financial burdens our again population deserve to live in dignity.

Opportunities
for Youth

As the son of a single mother and product of New York City public schools, Brian understands what it takes for a child to receive a good upbringing. For the past decade, he has worked directly with youth providing services and mentorship programming in underserved communities. Brian will increase funding for mentoring services, vocational training, and arts and recreation programs so our children have opportunities to succeed.

Criminal justice
reform is overdue

Stop-and-frisk may technically be over, but countless community members still experience discrimination and profiling. Brian is committed to fully ending these practices and to improving re-entry programs for formerly incarcerated individuals.

Small Businesses make our communities unique, employ our neighbors, and contribute to the economy and job creation as a whole

As your Council Member, Brian will provide tax incentives for small businesses who hire full-time employees and incentivize the creation of more incubator and coworking spaces for startups to drive down the cost of rent.

When Brian was Director of the Council’s Small Business Services, he was instrumental in the creation of Chamber on the Go which comes to the doorsteps of small businesses to provide government services on the spot.
