WHAT I STAND FOR
As a parent whose daughter graduated from Yonkers Public Schools and who was an active PTA member, I have seen progress in our schools. Our graduation rate is now 86%, highest among our State’s major Cities. However, we still have a ways to go. I am dedicated to working with parents, teachers, students and our representatives in Albany to get the fair funding our students deserve. I am dedicated to bringing back special services and programs that have been cut, continue working for smaller class sizes and working on the funding needed for new and modern buildings.
Having served for 8 years on the Yonkers Board of Assessment, I know well the difficult tax burden our homeowners face. Tax legislation passed by the Republicans in Washington last year has made things worse. With that in mind, we must do all we can to hold the line on any tax increase and carefully review and monitor City budgets. Part of that is ensuring that any tax breaks given to developers must result in expanding our tax base, not shifting the burden to Yonkers residents.
My view on development in our City is simple: Development should serve the interest of our City and its residents. That means developers who receive tax incentives should be required to pay prevailing wages and hire locally. Development should include Community Benefits Agreements that ensure the local community actually benefits from nearby development.
When a family is required to spend 30% or more of their income on housing, we have a problem and our City must focus on ways to solve it. We need to make sure that rent control laws remain in place and are enforced. I believe we should expand the amount of affordable housing that is part of the ongoing development projects. The current requirement of 10 % affordable on new projects is simply not enough.
As I walk around District 3, I hear concerns about the need for safer streets, speed bumps, cleaner parks, and sidewalks. These quality of life issues are important and I intend to make sure these concerns are heard in the City Departments responsible for these issues.
Vote ROW 12A on Tuesday June 25th 2019 for a Leader with the education, expertise and experience to represent you and who will fight every day to make our collective goals a reality. My name is OLASUBOMI MACAULAY and I am running for YONKERS CITY COUNCIL DISTRICT 3!
