Today, New York City Public Advocate Letitia “Tish” James endorsed Jamaal T. Bailey to represent the open Senate seat in the 36th District.
“Jamaal Bailey has been working hard on behalf of his community, both as the Community Relations Director for Speaker Carl Heastie and as a District Leader of the 83rd Assembly District. I am confident he will bring the same vigor and dedication to the people of the 36th Senatorial District,” said Public Advocate James.
“I’m grateful for the support of Public Advocate James,” said Bailey. She has been a staunch activist for the people of New York City and I hope to do the same for the constituents of Mount Vernon and the Bronx when elected to the State Senate.”
Public Advocate Letitia James is the first citywide elected official to endorse Jamaal Bailey.
The petitioning is still going on, and candidate Bailey must make it to the ballot first.
