Tony Avella For Mayor 2009

New York's mom-and-pop businesses are an integral part of our neighborhoods. In the City Council Tony Avella has worked to stop this trend.
Protect Our Neighborhoods-
Tony Avella believes that the neighborhoods of New York City are as unique as the people who live in them. As Mayor, Tony will continue to defend our neighborhoods and make New York a model of responsible, community-based planning.
Take Back Our Schools-
Tony Avella's record shows his commitment to creating an education system that works for all New Yorkers. As Mayor, the first thing Tony will do is fire Joel Klein and replace him with an experienced educator.
Tony Avella believes that elected officials should focus on serving the people who put them in office. Tony led the charge against Mike Bloomberg when he ignored the will of the people and asked the City Council to overturn term limits, and he'll keep his promise to end his term after eight years.
