District 26 includes the beautiful communities of Long Island City, Sunnyside, Woodside, and Astoria.
This is the fastest growing community in America, and we deserve a Councilmember that will fight to make it the fairest community in the city. Waterfront development. Sunnyside Yard. Newtown Creek superfund site. Squeezed-out artists. Oppressive lack of green space. Neglected NYCHA houses. Jam-packed schools.
It’s the best neighborhood in New York City – and where all the city’s challenges come to a head.
Two ways you can help right now
Volunteer to join the team
This campaign is built from the ground-up, based on community outreach and thousands of conversations. Sign up to join Ben in the fight for a fairer city.
Elections in NYC are different in 2021. Meet ranked- choice voting.
For the first time ever, New York City will use ranked-choice voting for the 2021 primaries. This will allow voters to choose up to five candidates and rank them in order of preference. If a candidate receives the majority of first choice votes, they win immediately. But if no candidate receives the majority, then the lowest polling candidate’s ballots are redistributed to the voter’s next highest choice. This continues until only two candidates are left, with the candidate receiving the most votes at that time winning the race.
I hope to be your first choice vote.
But if not, please consider us for your second spot.
