John Sanchez is running for City Council District 15. As District Manager for Bronx Community Board 6, Sanchez has advocated for more busways, bike lanes, and pedestrian plazas to reduce carbon emissions because he understands that addressing the climate challenge means having the courage to call for a reduction in car usage, especially in dense cities such as New York. If elected, Sanchez pledged to expand the BX15 line and allocate funding to create dedicated lanes for existing bus routes on major streets like Grand Concourse, Fordham Road, Crotona Ave, and White Plains Road. He will also advocate for the construction of protected bike lanes along all major streets in the district, as there is only one such lane in his district.
