We asked some Queens locals what they would like Bill de Blasio to do differently as mayor.

They should change the manner in which they do stop-and-frisk, not get rid of it all together. Crime has dropped; why do away with it?
Catherine Vodola

I’d like to see de Blasio keep his promises! I’d like him to be the better-man; better than all of the cynical nay-sayers. He should keep our public schools open, take care of our neighborhoods and put an end to minority targeting that goes on in the stop-and-frisk procedure.
Sharia Jones-Bey

I would like them to bring our real estate taxes down.
Rob Brtmandracchia

I hope he makes borough healthcare services more accessible. Everyone from every walk of life deserves the best care possible.
Emily Miao 

I’d like to see him continue Bloomberg’s successful programs. He should continue focusing on education. He’s rather inexperienced; hopefully he’ll gain insight on the job.
Dean Zias

It would be great if he could think of some road and mass transit projects to ease traffic/congestion on city highways. He should also do away with traffic light cameras; I think there are better ways to raise money for the city.
Keith Dennis

I want the crime rate to stay where it is. The de Blasio administration should let the police do their jobs. We have to keep New York City safe!”
Bill Delawski

I hope the new mayor will enable children from all over the city, equal opportunities. I also hope he will continue programs that protect and support children.
