He has evenhandedly overseen our city’s administration while balancing divergent community interests. He desires to keep Astoria a vibrant city with a diverse economy and a high quality of life.
Bruce understands Astoria’s challenges and, as mayor, will lead the city’s efforts to tackle the issues of homelessness, affordable housing, waterfront preservation and bringing living-wage jobs to our city.
Bruce has the experience Astoria needs to successfully face an uncertain future.
