For too long, the status quo has remained unchanged and unchallenged. The South Bronx deserves new leadership in the Assembly. I will work to improve educational opportunities for our students, make our community safer, and find truly affordable solutions to the housing crisis,” said Septimo.
Amanda’s campaign platform focuses on delivering change in several key areas, including affordable housing, education, mass transit, the opioid epidemic, criminal justice reform, and community safety.
