Peter LaVenia
for Albany Common Council, Ward 11

Vote Green, Not Machine!

I’m running for Common Council in Albany because I believe in

  • Open Government: It’s time to end one-party rule and build direct democracy in Albany so residents can truly control government. I pledge to caucus independently of the Democrats if elected so I can represent my constituents and not the machine.
  • Taxing the Rich & Providing Living Wage Jobs: We need to close the budget gap not with gimmicks like convention centers or aquariums but by taxing the wealthy and creating a public works jobs program at living wages. By driving down the inequality gap we will lift Albany.
  • Investing in Neighborhoods: We need to invest in quality of life, from vigorously enforcing code violations, rebuilding decaying housing stock and greening it to cut down on energy use, to increasing recycling and city composting, with bins on every block.
