He plans to make the city more bike friendly, and provide rent control and financial assistance to small businesses. Sherman also wants to reform the film industry, which has brought many jobs to the community, by ensuring they employ green practices and work to become carbon neutral. He is also in favor of defunding the NYPD and holding the state accountable for improving the MTA.
