James touts incumbent State Senator's strong record as a defender of Bronx families, advocate for greater transparency in Albany, and supporter of progressive issues
State Senator Gustavo Rivera continues to consolidate his support among New York's leaders in progressive politics with the endorsement today from New York City Public Advocate Letitia James. The Public Advocate's support draws a clear contrast between the incumbent Senator and his controversy-plagued, formerly-Republican opponent in the Democratic primary for the Bronx's 33rd Senate District.
"Gustavo Rivera is a true progressive in Albany, fighting for the needs and rights of working families. As the New York City Public Advocate, it is critical to have a partner in Albany fighting for tenants' rights, access to quality healthcare, and safer streets. I am proud to support Gustavo Rivera, and look forward to continuing our strong partnership on behalf of all New Yorkers,"said New York City Public Advocate Letitia James.
"I am honored to have the endorsement of our Public Advocate Letitia James," said State Senator Gustavo Rivera. "I share the Public Advocate's commitment to working families in the fight for fair and affordable housing, ensuring a living wage for all workers, and the many other issues affecting the Bronx. With her support, I look forward to continuing our work of making New York a safer, more equal place for all."
