Mayor Bill de Blasio takes office this January as New York City’s first Democratic mayor in two decades. But while de Blasio was elected with progressive pledges for education, economic equality and police reform, the work of change is just beginning.
It’s critical for New Yorkers to hold government accountable with our activism and voices. Start this month by penning a letter to the editor – to Clarion, The New York Times, or the NY Daily News – letting de Blasio know what issues are important to you and what you expect from your next mayor. Letters can be submitted to Clarion at email@example.com, the Times at firstname.lastname@example.org, and the NY Daily News at email@example.com.
