Chris Marte: “I was the first candidate to support defunding the police, especially by a billion, at the very least. I believe in defunding and making sure those funds go to youth programs and summer programs.” (Village Sun: see bottom of article)

Supports busing of our children outside of the district (NYC Kids PAC).

I was hesitant to criticize the policies of another candidate, but was convinced that Chris Marte policies are a threat to this City and decided that this race is about the future of our City. We believe it is fair game to criticize policies, but not the person. I am in this race to make this City a better place and I must standup and make the policies of Chris Marte known. Please note all quotes and policies above are cited with direct links to the source. No games being played here.
