What Actually Happens When Women Run & Win Elections
Published in Bustle on November 7, 2017 “Deborah Glick regularly works across party lines in her role as a Democratic member of the New York State Assembly, and firmly believes that more women in power would lead to better outcomes across the board, particularly in education and healthcare.
Interview on Reproductive Health Act
Capitol Pressroom Interview March 21, 2018 The Reproductive Health Act which would codify the Roe v. Wade decision into New York State law has stalled in the Senate Health Committee. We discussed the effort to pass the bill with the lead sponsor of the Assembly version, Asm. Deborah Glick (D-Manhattan). Listen to the whole story here.
Vote No on the State Constitutional Convention
November 2, 2017 Every 20 years, New Yorkers are asked to decide whether this state should hold a constitutional convention to consider constitutional amendments. That question will be on the ballot once again on Election Day. Holding a constitutional convention would threaten many of the essential protections already included in the New York State Constitution, and I encourage people to vote No.
Concerns Over Ride Sharing Apps
“Some lawmakers still remain concerned over the overall business model for ride hailing and its treatment of drivers and safety for passengers, including women and the disabled. ‘It’s a very, very large company that sees itself as a technology company, and therefore provides a platform, but does not view their drivers as employees,’ said Assemblywoman Deborah Glick (D – Manhattan). ” To see the whole story, go to: http://spectrumlocalnews.com/nys/capital-region/politics/2017/03/16/ride-hailing-in-upstate-new-york-latest

Testimony to Landmark 11 Jane Street
Testimony before the Landmarks Preservation Commission June 7, 2016 Thank you for the opportunity to testify before you today regarding the proposed redevelopment of 11 Jane Street, within the Greenwich Village Historic District. This proposal includes the demolition of the existing garage structure and the new construction of a 95 foot tall residential building. The proposed project would drastically alter the mid-block height of a narrow street in the Greenwich Village Historic District. Additionally, this taller structure would block out light and air from the surrounding street and community. I have deep reservations regarding this project and the negative impact it will have on the character of Jane Street.

Testimony on Success Academy
Testimony Regarding Success Academy’s Application in Manhattan’s Community School District 1 January 8, 2015 Thank you for the opportunity to testify before you regarding Success Academy Charter School’s application to open an elementary school in Manhattan’s Community School District 1. I gave previous testimony regarding Success Academy when it was slated to enter community school District 2 and once again I am voicing my displeasure at this unwanted incursion.
Testimony on South Village Historic District
Testimony Before the Landmarks Preservation Commission June 25, 2013 Thank you for the opportunity to testify today regarding the proposed South Village Historic District. The South Village is full of a rich cultural and architectural history that must be preserved. I hope this hearing is a sign of a significant commitment to help ensure that the character of the South Village, and the history of the late-19th and early-20th century immigrants who populated it, is preserved through an expeditious vote to designate the entirety of the identified South Village as an official Historic District.
Testimony Against Hydrofracking
Testimony Regarding the Department of Environmental Conservation Proposed Supplemental Generic Environmental Impact Statement and Proposed Regulations November 30, 2011 As the Assemblymember who represents a large portion of lower Manhattan I continue to oppose New York State’s proposed venture into the intensive process of Hydraulic Fracturing (“Fracking”). This proposed venture has the potential to greatly damage New York State’s scarce water and green resources. Fracking could endanger our scarce water and food supply, overburden our already depleted waste water and highway infrastructure, present significant health concerns for residents, and could create a housing crisis through technical defaults of mortgages not written to allow drilling permits. While America’s need for energy has increased so too has the need for government to weigh the economic benefits for a few versus the ecological and environmental impact that could last generations.
