Eliseo Labayen for New York City Council

District 29

I’m seeking the honor of serving Forest Hills, Rego Park, Kew Gardens, and Richmond Hill as a New York City Councilmember on a straightforward platform. Through investments in transportation, education, small businesses, and infrastructure, I will protect our most vulnerable citizens, preserve our cherished community, and lead our community with commonsense reform.

We must not lose site of the impending battle for our environment.


We cannot abide by a borough mega jail being built in Kew Gardens


Improvements for sidewalk and road safety, city commuting, and more.


Greater access to college, safety for schools, and a commonsense approach to student loans.


New York’s economic recovery depends on our small businesses


Ongoing support for free menstrual products to all municipal buildings


Overcoming the hurdle of affordable housing and homelessness


Support for Kendra’s Law and housing for the mentally ill


Provide options for the city to address the food insecurity crisis
