David N. Dinkins, 106th Mayor of the City of New York, issued the following statement today endorsing Alessandra Biaggi in the Democratic primary for State Senate in the 34th District:
“New York needs real Democrats in the State Senate to pass laws that serve all New Yorkers; laws that protect and expand affordable housing, make it easy for everyone to vote, ensure universal healthcare for everyone, provide every child in every zip code access to quality education, assure a women’s right to choose, guarantee equal justice for all, and so much more. Alessandra Biaggi is a leader in the fight to protect the constituents in her community and all New Yorkers. I am proud to support Alessandra Biaggi and I urge others to do the same.”
Biaggi has previously been endorsed by City Comptroller Scott Stringer, City Council Speaker Cory Johnson, Assemblymember Yuh-Line Niou, former Congressmen Charles Rangel and Lester Wolff, and former Attorney General G. Oliver Koppell.
Biaggi said, “Thank you Mayor Dinkins for recognizing the importance of having true Democrats in the State Senate who will work for legislation that will ensure that all New Yorkers can participate in picking their representatives and for a State government that serves the interests of all New Yorkers and not the special interests who make big campaign contributions.”
