Republican candidate Rob Astorino’s campaign on Tuesday released what amounts to an urban agenda that would create inner-city enterprises zones, place an emphasis on fathers in a family and overhaul public assistance programs through promoting school attendance and reimposing fingerprinting for food-stamp eligibility.

The plan also supports school choice, backing the education investment tax credit that has stalled in Albany, but is strongly supported by the Catholic church.

Astorino unveiled the urban agenda in the Bronx alongside Democratic Sen. Ruben Diaz, who endorsed the Republican gubernatorial hopeful earlier this month.

Astorino’s proposal would also place an emphasis on fatherhood, requiring the name of a biological father to appear on a birth certificate (There’s a number of issues with this: What about lesbian couples who have a child? What about a heterosexual couple who use a sperm donor? What if the mother, for whatever reason, doesn’t want the father to be included in the child’s life? These aren’t spelled out in the plan).

Additionally on the family front, faith leaders would be recruited to promote the role of fathers and establish a visiting nurse program that would serve pregnant, low-income women.

On the economic front, Astorino proposes micro-enterprise zones in neighbors that would be aimed at attracting retail and commercial services. The zones would be aimed at job creation and generating consumer choice.

At the heart of the plan are changes to public assistance programs that would seek to boost school attendance, require fingerprinting for food stamp eligibility as well as drug testing for adults on public assistance “upon reasonable suspicion.”

A public-safety program would crack down on gun-related crimes through expanded penalties based on a California law aimed at the use of a firearm while in the commission of a crime.

The public safety platform would offer “correctional boot camp” as an alternative to those convicted of non-violent, non-sexual crimes and allow non-violent juvenile offenders to go through a community service program.
