Here is the letter:

Dear Speaker Quinn,

We are disappointed to hear your criticism of Bill de Blasio’s plan to raise taxes on those making more than $500,000 in order to fund universal pre-k for New York City’s four-year olds and expanded after-school seats for all middle school students who want and need them.

New York City deserves a leader who has the bold vision we need to help our children succeed, and secure New York City's future. We cannot continue this Tale of Two Cities that right now threatens to leave a generation of our children behind. Over the past five years, New York City has lost over 30,000 after-school seats.[1] In addition, since 2011 more than 26,000 pre-k applicants have been denied admission to Department of Education Pre-K. [2]

New Yorkers don’t need another pilot program or stopgap solution that only solidifies the status quo, and they surely do not need to take on additional household debt in order provide their children a head start in life. Now is not the time for small ideas.

We need leadership that is not afraid to push for bold ideas for our city’s children and future. If this means fighting in Albany for New York City's right to increase taxes on the wealthy, we are eager for that challenge. And as history shows, it's a challenge that is certainly achievable. Each of the past three mayors have fought for and won personal income tax increases to address critical challenges facing our city.

As members of the New York State Legislature, we all stand ready to proudly sponsor Bill de Blasio’s plan to raise the city income tax on those making more than $500,000 – and we are confident Albany will pass it. We hope you will join us in fighting for a bold solution that can actually begin to address the crisis in our public education system.

Sincerely,

State Senator Liz Krueger

State Senator Bill Perkins

State Senator James Sanders, Jr.

State Assemblymember Luis Sepulveda
