Cleaning up doesn’t just mean corruption in government, it also applies to the neighborhood. We wrote the law to lower the volume on after hours construction. We’re fighting hundreds of miles of scaffolding, some of it almost old enough to vote, with legislation to force repairs so it comes down quickly. We even put a new, covered trash can on every corner and are working with Wildcat to keep streets clean.
As Borough President, Ben will clean up Manhattan:
- Take scaffolding and sidewalk sheds down around Manhattan.
- Solar compactors on every corner that are not only rat proof but can hold 5 times more trash.
- Enforce quality of life laws by holding absentee landlords accountable.
- Help the homeless.
