Maria Estrada, 72, a Bolivian immigrant and registered Democrat, stopped to pick up campaign literature. A frequent voter, she said her largest concerns were helping house people who were homeless.

Asked who she would vote for in the race for lieutenant governor, she said:

“I don’t know. Whoever is Hispanic.”

How many politicians here have their positions because people vote like this instead of actual support for the policies they advocate for?

Well, good luck to Ana Maria Archila. But I'm not voting for her, and that's not going to be a surprise to anyone who has followed me on reddit.

She is part of the decarceration movement which many neighborhoods have experienced in the past few years. Even though that started with good intentions, it has been stretched to an absurd extreme in NYC because of the lack of common sense.

The release of known repeat violent offenders (before they were no longer considered a threat to the public) has led to the rise of preventable violence which has disproportionately impacted the elderly, racial minorities and the economically vulnerable. It's time to stop that.

During Mr. Liu’s endorsement outside a public library in Flushing, some curious commuters briefly stopped to listen to Ms. Archila as she spoke, her aide holding an iPhone to livestream the event to the two people watching remotely.
