Clean Government

Clean, Scandal Free Government

As Mayor, Richard will root out corruption.
  • Follow the money. End pay-to-play, slush funds, and corruption. Don’t solicit or accept contributions from people doing business with NYC or seeking approvals.
  • Avoid even the appearance of impropriety in government by ending illegal and questionable fundraising.  Strengthen and comply with conflict of interest laws.
  • Avoid conduct that results in a need to pay $15,000,000 in taxpayer money for legal fees to fight multiple corruption investigations.
  • Do not release deed restrictions to allow luxury housing to replace a nursing home, and thereby allow the owner of Rivington House to flip it for a $72,000,000 profit.
  • Govern in the public interest rather than for personal political gain.
