Marjorie Velazquez is running to represent City Council District 13. Velazquez has fought for budget equity for open spaces. She supports a green shift in transportation infrastructure, especially along the Cross Bronx Expressway.
If elected, Velazquez will prioritize expanding transportation infrastructure through Design-Build contracting, deeply cutting construction timeframes and costs. Velazquez will continue to work on a program to benefit the NYCHA residents to develop their own gardens, and pressure grocery stores to provide fresh produce in underserved communities.
