  1. i think i should run for mayor, you just cant say you want more affordable housing for the extreme lowincome and the very lowincome, are they the only ones who need affordable/ income link housing? last time i checked there are 3 different lowincomes, once again jumping over other incomes will not cut it, if thats the case, keep the mayor we already have, also not everyone have families , make nyc affordable place to live for all incomes
