Brad Hoylman, Senate District 27, Greenwich Village, Chelsea, Midtown, UWS (Incumbent)
Still serving his first term in the State Senate, Brad Hoylman has already emerged as a leader on street-safety issues. He was a strong supporter of the recently enacted laws lowering New York City’s speed limit and increasing the deployment of speed cameras, and last month, he directed the State Department of Motor Vehicles to stop unlawfully charging cyclists for driver surcharges on summonses. He was also an early backer of the newly implemented East Village Neighborhood Slow Zone. Hoylman supports the campaign to remake Fifth and Sixth Avenues into complete streets, backs the MoveNY fair-tolling plan, and has expressed interest in introducing legislation that would make it easier for law enforcement to secure cell phone records after vehicular crashes.
