"Randy Abreu is a true progressive and will be a strong voice on the issues that matter most to working families in the Bronx. We plan to work hard to elect Randy Abreu so he can champion issues like more affordable housing, good jobs and great schools,” said Juan Antigua, Working Families Party New York City Political Director.
In a statement, Abreu said “I am humbled to receive the endorsement from one of New York State’s most progressive parties. It is an honor to receive support from the same party that endorsed Senator Bernie Sanders,” said Abreu. “Working families are the backbone of our City’s economy, and yet the hard-working families of our communities, and in the 14th district continue to be underrepresented and underserved. As our community’s next city councilmember, I will fight for the traditionally disadvantaged, and live up to the values of the Working Families Party every day.”
