PAST: Annual Members Meeting May 31, 2014

ShorrisAnthony Shorris, First Deputy Mayor or New York City, praised the League for its work in encouraging citizens’ active participation in democracy. He spoke about what the NYC Government is doing to help make democracy work, citing two priorities: first, bringing down barriers between people and the government and, second, making people feel that they can have an impact on government. The goals are to make government relevant to the people, to demonstrate that elections matter and have consequences in their lives, and to increase the sense of urgency and consequences of taking action. He said that the City is changing the scale of projects in order to make an impact on the lives of a large number of people; the issues are too serious and pressing to permit small pilot projects. Big programs planned and/or underway include the 200,000 units of affordable housing, the modification of Stop and Frisk laws, municipal ID cards, universal pre-K, and “Vision Zero” to eliminate traffic fatalities. He answered numerous questions ranging from governance of Public Authorities, to affordable housing, pre-school education, disaster preparedness, and the use of eminent domain.
