Issue Position: Supporting Uptown's LGBTQ Community

Jan. 1, 2016

Carmen has long stood behind the LGBTQ community in northern Manhattan, recently assisting efforts to start an LGBTQ task force through Community Board 12. During her time in Assembly Member O'Donnell's office, she supported efforts to pass marriage equality in New York State. She has earned the support of both the Stonewall Democratic Club of NYC and the Jim Owles Democratic Club, two of the largest LGBTQ-focused political clubs in the city. As uptown's representative in the Assembly, Carmen will: * Ensure that members of the Uptown LGBTQ community have full and fair access to resources that contribute to their health and well-being; * Identify unmet needs and services for the LGBTQ community in Inwood Washington Heights and Marble Hill; * Fight to end discrimination of members of the LGBTQ community not only uptown but across the state; * Develop support networks and services for LGBTQ youth, to provide a safe and supportive environment uptown; * Ensure services across the state are easily accessible and equitable to gender-nonconforming or trans-persons.

Issue Position: Environmental Protection

Jan. 1, 2016

With climate change already playing a serious role on New York, we need to be taking a serious focus to utilizing sustainable energy sources and lowering our reliance on fossil fuels. To prevent against continued environmental degradation, Carmen will: * Maintain the ban on fracking in New York State to protect communities upstate, as well as New York City's water supply; * Reduce reliance on car usage in New York City through funding expansions and improvements of public transit; * Support efforts to reduce emissions from city buildings, which account for the largest percentage of emissions, through retrofitting and use of more energy efficient technologies; * Protect New York's natural areas, both upstate and in New York City, by promoting conservation efforts of land and wildlife across the state;

Issue Position: Supporting our Mom and Pop Shops

Jan. 1, 2016

Just as our people are under threat from gentrification, our small businesses are facing the same pressures. Corporate chains are moving into our neighborhood, rents are rising for our long time small mom and pop shops with little relief. Carmen has a history of supporting small businesses in the City Council and will: * Work to support efforts for rent regulations for longtime businesses, so that those serving our community for generations are not forced out; * Keep Walmart out of New York City; * Support efforts to create small business development grants and enhance funding to our local * Business Improvement District and local chambers of commerce; * Continue advocating for the Small Business Jobs Survival Act at the local level to ensure small businesses have a chance at settling with landlords as rents continue to rise.
