"There are hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers who've never experienced stop and frisk. Chirlane and I have talked to Dante many times about the fact that some day you will be stopped. Parents all over this city are having that conversation with their kids. I wish everyone could see through the eyes of every other parent. These are all our children."

Bill de Blasio is the only candidate to end a stop-and-frisk era that targets minorities, and the only one who will tax the rich to fund after-school programs that keep our kids safe.

Save New York City's Hospitals

August 2, 2013


Instead of asking if we should keep New York City's community hospitals open for care, we need to ask how. Bill's proposing a Health Authority in Brooklyn that would combine city and state resources and regulatory power to ensure that no hospital closes, and that each can provide the health care we need now and in the future. If we get this right in Brooklyn, we could use the same approach to save hospitals across the five boroughs. This could even be a model for the country.  



Bill de Blasio para Alcalde

August 1, 2013


Hoy, en Nueva York, estamos viviendo una Historia de Dos Ciudades. En un Nueva York, Wall Street está obteniendo ganancias de récord, y se están construyendo condominios de lujo todos los días. Pero en el otro Nueva York, casi la mitad de nuestra ciudad vive a nivel o cerca de la pobreza. Millones luchan simplemente para poder pagar su alquiler o su seguro médico. La semana pasada, yo me uní a protestantes en la lucha por mantener un hospital público local abierto, y en un acto de desobediencia civil, me sometí a un arresto voluntariamente. Vamos a mantener esta lucha -- y la lucha a través de nuestra ciudad, en los cinco condados, para traer justicia de vuelta a Nueva York. Soy Bill de Blasio, y soy candidato a Alcalde. Si usted cree en nuestra lucha para obtener justicia económica, por favor visite hoy. Muchas gracias. Un lider progresista que logrará que NY sea una ciudad para todos nosotros -- no sólo para los adinerados y aquellos en Wall Street.
