  1. Which Millennials are Ras talking about? I've lived in Newark my WHOLE life and I can't afford to live downtown with a full time job. I think there needs to be a discussion about gentrification in Newark and maintaining affordability in the city.

  2. I hope he wins, but I want to hear more concrete plans of how he would curb the negative aspects of gentrification

  3. They left out that the 100 million was matched and $200 million was squandered. Smh the problem isn't always more funding but what they DO with the funding
