Pema Chodron Says
“Things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.”

It is there, in the midst of chaos, that we can discover indestructible truth and love."

The office of Public Advocate is a citywide elected position in New York City, first in line to succeed the mayor. The office serves as a direct link between the electorate and city government, acting as ombudsman, or watchdog for New Yorkers. The term is four years and may also run for a consecutive second term. The role of public advocate has been around since 1993, technically a part of City Council, though a non-voting member, the public advocate does have the right to introduce and co-sponsor legislation and is also tasked with reviewing and investigating complaints concerning city services and other administrative actions of city agencies, plus issuing reports to the council and the mayor.
