Petition with Vince Morgan

Join StreetsPAC-endorsed candidate Vince Morgan for petitioning on Friday June 21st at 6 PM at 110th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard.

StreetsPAC will be out petitioning with Vince to help him appear on the ballot for the September 10th Primary. Please join us and show your commitment to electing public officials who are committed to improving the safety, mobility and livability of one of New York City’s greatest assets: our streets. 

Vince is challenging two-term incumbent Inez Dickens for this Harlem seat. Morgan is sharply critical of Dickens’s opposition to safety upgrades on Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard, a six-lane road that’s been one of New York City’s deadliest for pedestrians and which his children cross on their way to school. Morgan also intends to win M60 Select Bus Service for the entire stretch of 125th Street in District 9, only half of which is slated to receive the faster service.
