Christopher Marte is seeking re-election to represent District 1 in the New York City Council. Marte is consistently supportive of environmental legislation. Since taking office last year, he has advocated for historically high levels of funding for NYCHA, co-founded two community gardens at NYCHA developments, and pushed for greater funding for coastal resiliency projects in Lower Manhattan. Marte is an advocate for green space, supporting new parks like Pier 41 and Brooklyn Bridge Manhattan Park project. He plans to continue working with the Tenant Associations in his district to ensure every NYCHA development fixes heating and air conditioning systems, addresses mold related issues, and guarantees residents have access to clean water.
