Democratic candidate for governor Cynthia Nixon, democratic candidate for lieutenant governor Jumaane Williams, and former Speaker of the New York City Council Melissa Mark-Viverito joined childcare providers on Friday, today at Esther’s Beauty Salon on Walton Avenue to celebrate the vital commitment of home child care providers who care for our children.
