hi – would like to know StreetsPAC’s endorsements for NYC mayor, city council, when will you publish those?

My name is Sidney Essex and I am a freshman studying International Affairs, Public Policy, and Arabic at the George Washington University. I’m also a lifelong Brooklyn native with a vested interest in making my city safer, more livable, and more prosperous—and I would love to do so as an intern for StreetsPAC. I am a diligent researcher with a strong understanding of urban policy, experience in political organizing, as well as technical and communication skills that would be of great assistance. Please let me know if I can provide a resume, cover letters, or any other necessary materials and thank you in advance for your consideration.

Hi. I’m the Political Director for John Choe’s campaign for City Council in District 20. Is StreetsPAC making endorsements in the municipal elections in 2021? John is an avid bicyclists, who is active in TransALT and the Eastern Queens Greenway . He was also a champion of the Main Street busway that finally was started.j

Hello and Happy New Year! I hope this message finds you well. I am a candidate native to Red Hook, Brooklyn, for City Council District 38 in 2021. I wanted to inquire about your endorsement for 2021 races, and see if there is a questionnaire available. Safe and accessible streets are something very important to me. Our streets here in District 38 are currently dangerous and in much need of liveable upgrades. Growing up in the transportation desert of Red Hook, I know firsthand how important it is to make our roads safe for pedestrians, buses, and cyclists alike and I’m very eager to get to work on this. I hope to hear back from you soon.

Hi StreetsPAC!


I’m very interested in ending the Stipulated Fine Program. This program allows delivery companies to pay a reduced fee for traffic violations, in exchange for giving up the ability to challenge the ticket in court. Here’s some more information: https://www1.nyc.gov/nycbusiness/description/nyc-delivery-solutions-the-stipulated-parking-fine-program

With this program, New Yorkers are giving handouts to giant corporations (many of whom have profited off the pandemic) as well as the ability to act with impunity on our streets. The next NYC administration ought to eradicate the Stipulated Fine Program, not only to make our streets safer, but to provide the city with much needed revenue at an extremely challenging fiscal moment. Personally I think we should go a step further, and not only eliminate the Stipulated Fine Program, but also invert its design. Instead of allowing everyone to pay the same amount for the same infraction, these massive companies ought to be paying a progressive penalty in order to disincentivize this anti-social behavior.


For these reasons, I ask you to consider adding a question to your endorsement questionnaire which would ask mayoral candidates whether they’ll, at the very least, end this asinine program.


Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

Luke Szabados

Alyson: I respect your right to vote for who you want. But this is about DONALD TRUMP, not about your hurt feelings re: Bernie, or distaste for the DNC. Trump is a DANGER TO DEMOCRACY and you need to put your personal feelings aside. DO NOT throw away your vote, or you vote for Trump. That is a fact that you cannot rationalize away. Please, suck it up for this election, so we may still have a country for you to bitch about. PLEASE.
commented 2020-03-13 19:37:47 -0400
I’ve seen your rhetoric on how you don’t want to vote for the Democratic nominee for president if it’s not Bernie Sanders. I respect and appreciate where you are coming from as a full supporter of Medicare-For-All, reducing college debt, making the rich pay their fair share in taxes and most of the other ideas that Senator Sanders espouses. It would be nice to be able to have all of that right away, but sometimes change doesn’t happen as quick as we’d like.


However, as a member of the LGBTQ community (albeit in a Blue state,) I still feel the weight of discriminatory measures and hateful rhetoric that Trump has hurled at our community, and I can only imagine how much worse its become for non-whites and non-males in this Trump-toxic environment. Hate crimes and LGBTQ suicide rates are at all-time highs and discriminatory policies are being shoved down the throats of Americans more frequently than ever before. So many people are hurting right now and we don’t have the luxury of “waiting out” Trump and hoping for a “revolution” in 2024/5. Not to mention that Global Warming/Climate Change needs to be addressed yesterday and isn’t going to get any better by the end of a second Trump administration.


Taken from the FB page of a Transgender friend of mine on 3/11/20; please read and think about her points when encouraging people to not #VoteBlueNoMatterWho in November:

“Bernie did not have a good night last night. Whether he drops out or not remains to be seen, but I’m seeing reality setting in amongst a lot of Bernie voters, and, as a very disappointed Warren supporter, let me extend my sympathy


and empathy – without any kind of vermin emoji – because I know it sucks. It really does. Neither of these two candidates were in my top 5 – one wasn’t even in my top 15.


But, holy shit, is it wild to see these people who stressed the importance of voting for the progressive when other candidates dropped out suddenly declare that they are just going to stay home on election day because Bernie didn’t


get the nomination. Fucking. Wild.


As a trans woman living under this regime, which is very specifically and directly targeting my community’s ability to exist in public, and participate in civic life, this is an incredibly privileged position to see. More people like


me will die under 4 more years of Trump than will do so under 4 years of any non-GOP administration. Even the benign (well, indifferent) neglect of democratic administrations past is far preferable to this.


And that’s just the trans community. Parallel efforts are also underway targeting the rights of LGBQP folks to exist in public and live and love without discrimination, too.


The misogyny is endemic everywhere, but obviously worse under He-Who-Grabs-The-Pussy.


And this is all from my position as a white woman. This doesn’t even begin to address the violence perpetrated against communities of color every single day this actively white supremacist administration holds power over black and


brown people. Every human right they can strip, they are trying – with all-too-frequent success – to strip. No matter the implicit bias and racism amongst all white people, you can’t really believe the lives of your black, brown and


Asian friends are just the same under a Trump administration as under any Democrat administration?


And, of course, voting is more than just about the president. It’s about voting in progressive and leftward local council members, school board members, state legislators, Congress members, governors, etc. The right put in decades of


work to take control over as much local and state-level power as possible to set up the ability to exercise minority rule as they have for the past two decades. The fact that the left refuses to put that work in instead of just taking


their ball and going home at the first or second setback is why the gop and Nazi right know that they just have to wait us out.


If nothing else, electing Trump guarantees a 7-2 conservative Supreme Court majority, which means that it doesn’t matter who we elect because no progressive policy will survive a Supreme Court challenge for two generations.


A vote for anyone other than the eventual Democratic nominee is a vote for Trump. Period. It sucks and it’s really shitty that this is the system we have to work in, but this is the system we have to work in until we can get in a


position to change it. Sitting at home on election day is co-signing this system’s validity – you can’t change anything from there.


I’m sure this sounds really shaming, and it definitely is a little, but it’s also true. This country is at an inflection point. It is impossible to overstate the danger of Trump.


If all of those voters this meme imagines are just waiting to vote for Bernie actually showed up in the Democratic primary, he’d win. The fact that they won’t show up in the practice round does not bode well for their commitment in


November. Bernie doesn’t generate turnout. Biden, for whatever godforsaken reason, does. He’s not my choice, but here we fucking are. I’ll vote for Bernie as he misses the Illinois primary, because my candidate already dropped out and


showing support for his policy with a strong second place finish will help move the party platform leftward, and come November, I will show the fuck up, hold my goddamn nose and vote for Biden. Because lives are on the line. Mine and


those of people who are not like me.


That’s what really kills me. I kept seeing meme after meme attacking Warren supporters for not immediately supporting Bernie that said variations on “Bernie voters actually want to help people who are not like them” which is a cool


sentiment until they show their true colors by declaring that they’ll just stay home when he loses instead of actually casting a vote in November that reduces the most harm, even if it’s an incremental improvement (which is the only


actual way change happens).


Do as you please with your vote. It’s your right as a citizen. But a declaration that if you can’t vote for Bernie, you just won’t vote, only says that you recognize that no matter the danger that another Trump term represents, you


know you’re not the one in actual danger and therefore, you’re just kind of fine with that."

Hello there!


My name is Ben Radding, and I’m a writer with Fatherly.com. I’m writing a piece on the need for more family-friendly streets, and I was hoping I could talk to someone at StreetPAC this week about it and what that would look like. I’d be really interested in you perspective, especially as it pertains to kids.


Let me know, and thanks!

To whom it may concern,


I hope this email finds you well! My name is Amanda Morris, and I’m an NYU Journalism student who is doing a video journalism story on biking in the city, what that’s like, and how safe or unsafe it is to bike in New York. I was wondering if I could arrange a time to meet some members of your organization and do interviews on camera for my advanced reporting class. I would also like to film some BROLL for this piece.


I think this is a topic that is grossly under reported and could benefit from more attention in the media, especially given what happened last week.


If possible, I’d love to film an interview before next week. I’m available on Wednesday afternoon or Friday afternoon. I’m also available on Saturday throughout the day.


I plan to attend the biker’s day of remembrance on the 19th.


Please let me know if there would be someone from the organization who can talk to me. Also, if there is anyone that I should reach out to for this project, please let me know and put me in touch with them, thank you!!


Again, please respond as soon as you can to let me know if you’re willing to do an interview and what time/day would be most convenient for you.


I hope you have a great day! Thanks again!


All my best,

Amanda Morris

I saw a post on FB proposing a comprehensive snow-removal policy, and I agree. The post also reminded me of the problem of garbage in the streets and particularly on the sidewalks. In Forest Hills, a string of restaurants and businesses on Queens Blvd. leave the sidewalks splattered and smeared with food and liquids, hundreds of cigarette butts, papers, wrappers, bottles, you name it. I’ve written to the businesses, called 311 and written to Karen Koslowitz, but nothing has changed. A staff person at CB9 told me business owners are only responsible for cleaning in front of their store in time for their customers. It’s crazy, and disgusting.
