We need to continue to fight to strengthen our economy, to protect our
environment, to protect women’s rights to make their own health decisions...
Heshy’s Tax Plan
Heshy has fought all his life to prevent the frivolous nickel and diming of landlords and small businesses. In the City Council, he will craft and submit legislation to lower the interest rate and late payment fees for these fines. He will also create an annual amnesty for all fines, where people can pay their fines without worrying about late payment fees.
When Mayor Bill de Blasio closed the parks earlier this year and refused to reopen it even with strict social distancing, nobody stood up for the hundreds of mothers who needed an open space for their children to enjoy themselves. Weeks passed, the number of COVID-19 cases dwindled, and the parks still had those ugly chains wrapped around the gates.
Stand with Heshy
Heshy as a Community Activist
Heshy grew up with a sister who has Down Syndrome. That experience has helped him emphasize with those who require medical care and constant hospitalizations. He and his wife Linda have been helping special needs children and adults for decades. For over 30 years, Heshy tries to make it to the hospital every day, bringing sandwiches and fresh food for the patients. He visits inmates in prison every two weeks, bringing good cheer and a smile to those forgotten by society.
Heshy’s long experience working with city government on behalf of people has given him a unique perspective on what has to be strengthened and what should be changed — or dropped entirely.
Heshy rose to national prominence when he restored ownership of New York City’s parks to its citizens. He will therefore be looking into reorganizing the Parks Department — there is too much bureaucracy there and not enough action for residents of the five boroughs.
