Crime, Safe Streets &
Police Reform Platform
"After release from prison after 32 years, I met Sean Hayes on the street in Harlem and Sean Hayes gave me an opportunity and has been a real friend. I do not think this City can find such a good hearted, professional and dedicated person. He loves New York and we need to Love Sean. New York needs more experienced leaders with a good heart and solutions."

Incarcerated in a NY Prison for 32 Years
We New Yorkers must support our police, school safety agents and other law enforcement personnel, but of course the bad cops need to be punished. Law enforcement, as a whole, is not the problem. A few bad apples does not spoil the whole bunch. The reality is the NYPD has more people of color than whites and it is one of the greatest police forces in the United States. The problems in other States, are not problems that we regularly see in New York.
We are Losing Good Police Officers and We are Getting Less Qualified Officers to Join the Force
We are losing good cops, because of the hate filled rhetoric of politicians and the reactionary policies of the NYC Council and Mayor's office. These politicians polarize us in order to gain political street cred and spin voters. When the election is over, we rarely see any solutions from these pontificators.
We need Solutions, Not Mere Rhetoric
We need solutions and we need politicians with the capability and will to provide solutions. My campaign for New York City Council in District 1 is showing that reasonable commonsense solutions do exist. Please see our policies in the link below.
A rise in crime should lead to rise in the police budget and a more accountable police force. We need to, however, consider transitioning some of the increased police budget to social workers, mental health specialists that can work under law enforcement to handle the issues caused by the mentally ill. These residents deserve better and we deserve better.
Sean Hayes 4 NYC is the only campaign for District 1 City Council with comprehensive and pragmatic solutions to the problems facing New York City. We are confident that we can push the NY City Council and vocalize the needs of the community as a member of the New York City Council.
