Bill de Blasio


Bill de Blasio has been New York’s most Progressive Mayor in decades.

Progressive Credentials: 

  • Made good on his campaign promise to provide free Universal Pre-K
  • Launched the IDNYC program, in part to help undocumented immigrants in need of a government-verified proof of identification do things like open a bank account.
  • Implemented a rent freeze for many rent-regulated apartments, and he has taken aggressive stands on the minimum wage, climate change, and mental-health services.
  • As New York City Public Advocate, de Blasio consistently championed the rights of middle- and working-class families – from fighting for a surcharge on the wealthiest New Yorkers in order to fully fund universal early education and after-school programs for all children, to working for affordable and safe housing and job opportunities with good wages for all New Yorkers.

Why We Like Him:  In many ways, Bill de Blasio is the anti Trump (Alt-Trump?), and has taken his disastrous policies and statements head on.

Candidate Quote: “21st Century Democrats was an early supporter of my campaign for Mayor, and I support their work to ensure we elect more progressive Democrats to office.”
