Chris Banks, Council District 42, Brooklyn
StreetsPAC's Endorsement Announcement:
Chris Banks is eager to bring much-needed bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure to the neglected roadways that locals call "the pothole capital of Brooklyn." He demands greater investment in the community's transit options; as co-chair of Community Board 5's Transportation Committee, Banks fought the MTA when it cut the B20 bus line and championed the New Lots pedestrian plaza. Banks adamantly supports improved access to the waterfront greenway along Jamaica Bay, envisions a bicycle lane along New Lots avenue, and proposes a complete-street makeover for 10-lane Linden Boulevard.
