New York City Council Member Paul Vallone Endorses Ron Kim for Public Advocate

New York City Council Member Paul Vallone today endorsed Assemblymember Ron Kim for New York City Public Advocate. Council Member Vallone joins a growing list of elected officials, community leaders, academics and activists who have thrown their support behind Ron Kim’s candidacy for the office.

"For years, Ron Kim has fought alongside me in Northeast Queens to improve our local schools, keep our streets safe and help small businesses grow,” said Council Member Vallone. “Ron is a determined and tireless public servant who will use the bully pulpit of the Public Advocate’s Office to stick up for the interests of Queens’ families and be a strong voice for the middle class. He has my full support.”
“I’d like to thank Council Member Vallone for his support and look forward to our continued partnership on education, public safety, small business growth and many other critical issues facing Queens,” said Assembly member Ron Kim, candidate for NYC Public Advocate. “I’m running for Public Advocate because I’m tired of watching the needs of everyday people come second to those of the world’s wealthiest corporations. When a company like Amazon receives billions of dollars in taxpayer handouts while our subways crumble and affordable housing becomes increasingly scarce, it’s clear that something needs to change. My central message is putting people over corporations, and that’s exactly what I will do as Public Advocate.”
