John Mancuso, Council District 50, Staten Island
John Mancuso, a Captain in the Auxiliary Police from South Beach, plans to focus on improving Staten Island's transportation infrastructure. His most urgent priority is to transform dangerous thoroughfares like Hylan Boulevard into high-performance complete streets that safely accommodate more users. He'll champion construction of a pedestrian and cyclist path on the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, in order to add transportation options, improve disaster preparedness, and boost tourism to Staten Island. He will also work to keep cars out of parks and reform New York City's dysfunctional bridge-tolling system to equalize fares across all of NYC's bridges.
