The 43rd Assembly District


he 43rd Assembly District is a cultural melting pot which encompasses a wide array of families from across the world. This bustling community incorporates Central Brooklyn, Crown Heights, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Wingate and East Flatbush. Although our neighborhood is divided by invisible lines, we remain a unified entity.

This district is home to various cultures, religions, foods, languages connected through shared values. It also includes some of New York’s major institutions including: Medgar Evers College, New York City, Health & Hospitals/Kings County, in addition to scores of public Schools and the Jewish Children’s Museum. These institutions have helped stitch together each member of the district, from various neighborhoods into ONE family.

The Bedford Union Armory

Richardson understands the importance of the Bedford Union Armory presents to the community, in ensuring that everyone has real affordability. She also understands that this city owned land can contribute to the leering housing issues and lack of youth activity space, in the 43rd Assembly District and beyond.

Vital Brooklyn

Richardson recognizes the many benefits that the Vital Brooklyn Initiative can bring to Central Brooklyn, through implementation of affordable housing, spurring economic growth, addressing health issues, instituting community based violence prevention, increasing availability of healthy food, increasing resiliency, and ensuring comprehensive education and youth development.


Richardson is passionate about emphasizing education equity regardless of class, race or economic standing. She understands that there is deep education inequality for low income and minority students, and has made it her mission to address educational disparities affecting the community.

Small Businesses

Richardson understands that small businesses provide invaluable contributions to the growth and vitality of our community, particularly speaking to economic and socioeconomic development.

Affordable Housing

Richardson recognizes that protecting and building affordable housing units is paramount to ensuring that there is affordability for all New Yorker’s, and that our working poor and middle-class residents continue to thrive, amidst soaring rents and unfair housing practices.

Anti-Gun Violence

Richardson serves as a huge proponent for anti-gun violence issues and utilizes strategic community engagement and effective policy advocacy to ensure the safety of our community.
