Jo Anne Simon is running to be our next Brooklyn Borough President, taking over for term-limited Eric Adams (who is a candidate for NYC Mayor).
The borough president proposes legislation, zoning changes, city-wide budget recommendations, and direction for land-use in the borough. Borough presidents appoint members to the New York City Planning Commission, and members to other local boards.
PoliticsNY asked Simon, who currently serves in the NYS Assembly, three questions in three minutes as part of our meet the candidate series on the road to the June 22 citywide primaries.
