Joe Lentol, Assembly District 50, Greenpoint and Williamsburg (Incumbent)
Joe Lentol is the second most senior member of the Assembly, and as chair of the Codes Committee, he drafted and passed legislation that increased penalties for driving without a license or with a suspended license. He has been a strong supporter of speed cameras, and has led the fight for installation of a two-way protected bike path on the Pulaski Bridge, now expected for spring 2015. He is committed to improving the suspended/unlicensed driver laws, by uncoupling license suspensions from non-driving infractions and simultaneously increasing penalties for driving without a license and beefing up suspensions for dangerous driving. He’s also committed to working to remove restrictions on speed camera deployments.
