Statement From Cesar A. Perales Chair 2018 New York City Charter Revision Commission

"The Charter Revision process is designed to improve New York City democracy and today, the voters have spoken. Through meetings over months that spanned all five boroughs, the 2018 NYC Charter Revision Commission was proud to meet New Yorkers in their neighborhoods to hear their ideas on how to make New York City a better place. I'd like to thank our commissioners, members of the public, elected officials, good government groups and others who submitted ideas and thoughts. The Charter Revision process is one designed to engage New Yorkers about the future of their city and that is exactly what happened."
