Bill de Blasio's Own Statement for 2017 Benchmarks

I’ve said throughout this campaign, I want to address the inequalities of this city. To me, it would mean that we’re doing something very meaningful to increase wages and benefits, including things like paid sick leave and living wage legislation. It would mean that we’ve gotten children full-day pre-K and after-school programs, that we’re steadily increasing that. It would mean that we’ve repaired the relationship between police and community. And obviously, substantial progress on the goal of 200,000 units of affordable housing.
