Electeds share their visions for Brooklyn's future

Leaving Brooklyn? Fuhgeddaboudit! You'd be hard-pressed to find a group more committed to the future of the borough than its elected officials. So we reached out to all of them – members of Congress, state senators, Assembly members, and even the borough president – to ask for their visions for the future of Brooklyn. We got responses from 37 of them, representing all corners of the borough from Greenpoint to Coney Island, Bay Ridge to East New York. 

Their responses were as varied as Brooklynites themselves, with talk of growing manufacturing jobs, maintaining diversity, and, of course, avoiding the negative effects of gentrification. One common thread: keeping a Brooklyn that Brooklynites are proud to live in. Read on to see what they had to say.
