Campaign themes


Banks' campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Affordable Housing

  • Excerpt: "My efforts will focus on increasing access to affordable housing, enforcing standards for affordability, requiring developers to set units for low- and middle-income families aside in large projects, and protecting renters from being priced out of neighborhoods they helped build."

Creating Jobs

  • Excerpt: "Responsible development includes investing in public services, like hospitals, nursing homes, and mental health centers; improving public transportation; ensuring adequate state aid for local governments and schools; and raising the minimum wage."

Protecting and Expanding Services for Our Seniors

  • Excerpt: "As your Assemblyman, I will fight to make sure Access-A-Ride is reformed so our seniors are not left out in the cold because their transportation was late or simply a no-show."

Advocating for Our Youth

  • Excerpt: "I want to provide better synergy between local nonprofits and schools so we can work together for the youth in our community. "
