Anthony Rivers for City Council 27
While working with a collective of residents and community organizations to insist the housing units on Hollis Avenue, between 202 and 204 street be structured to serve the needs of the community and any group selected to reside in them, I realized that although the community was focused there was a void in political representation. Unlike the current City Council Leader who never attended or hosted a community forum to address this or other pertinent issues; Myself along with several other committed community residents and organizations held weekly vigils hosted forums at Saint Matthews AME Church and kept the community abreast of political and legal proceedings. I have been a public servant for most of my adult life. I was a United States Marine, an employee of the New York City Police Department, and respected member of a financial institution that helps to inform and expose people to financial options and opportunities. As a result of my commitment to excellence, my service in the Marines concluded with an Honorable discharge, when I retired from New York Police Department I had attained the rank of Lieutenant. My life experiences have given me an opportunity to see how the quality of life within a community can be impacted by the participation of community residents in local politics. When the residents and the public servants have common objectives, challenges of all sorts can be resolved in ways that benefit the masses. I adamantly believe that the residents of our community deserve to be represented by people who know our concerns, are part of the community, respect the people in the community, and can physically host regular community town hall forums. Currently, I am licensed (for over 22 years) and actively employed in the area of financial services. I’m a husband of 30 years, father of three young adults, and a homeowner who has resided in the Saint Albans Community for 23 years. I know that our community needs committed residents working together to keep it viable. Thus I am going to announce I am running for the party position of City Council District 27. Topics I have included in my platform. Southeastern Queens should get a Fair and Equitable share of government (city) resources, as they impact: • Education • Choice should mean the selection of specialty programs of study not public vs. charter • Housing • Shelters are not the solution for homelessness. • The objective of the city should be to maintain our affordable housing and or supplemental housing allotments. • Review of taxes, utility charges for home owners • Safety and Justice • Community and Law Enforcement agencies must meet to: • Review community strengths • Jointly commit to community security • Celebrate achievements (less arrests, less incidents, etc) • Employment. • Incubation /Industrial center that hires from the community • Development/ expansion of training center • trades • entry office skills • Neighborhood Maintenance • Advocating for: • paving of streets • more green space • cleaning of major thorough fares/ transportation hubs • enforcement of quality of life issues • removal of abandoned cars • excessive noise

Reform Stamford
Reform Stamford is a group of passionate Stamford residents in districts 1, 2, 4, 8, 17, 18, and 19 who are running for Board of Reps in Connecticut to fix their city. They see an entrenched political system that upholds the status quo and feels this stagnation has resulted in residents feeling rightfully frustrated with their city government. The people of Stamford deserve real representation that doesn’t pander to party or special interests, but truly represents them. They pledge to work hard to finally make Stamford a place where everyone has an equal seat at the table. This is hard to do alone, but as a coalition of residents and elected officials, we feel they can achieve great things for their city.
