What caught our attention from Margaret's questionnaire/interview:
"I don’t actually have a driver’s license. I am a huge fan of public transit and walking – I always get around my district with my own two feet and using buses and subways. I support bicycling and walking and anything that keeps people healthy."
StreetsPAC's Endorsement Announcement:
Chin has been fighting for safe and livable streets in Lower Manhattan. She wants to work closely with Sam Schwartz to advance his Move NY equitable transportation formula, which would implement fair pricing throughout the city and support better transportation infrastructure. She submitted an application to implement a Neighborhood Slow Zone in Battery Park City, and will fight for similar improvements on the Lower East Side.
