Paul Vallone, the Democratic nominee for the 19th City Council District, has received the endorsement of Assemblymember Nily Rozic of Fresh Meadows.
Rozic, who represents parts of Eastern Queens stated, “Paul has been a neighborhood leader with the experience, enthusiasm and integrity to serve our schools, parks, and middle class and working families. From his work in the community, I know he will be a great partner in our fight for women’s rights, quality health care, housing for seniors, and expanded transportation for Northeastern Queens. Paul is the voice working for all of us in the city council—and that’s exactly what Queens needs.”
In thanking Rozic for her support Vallone said, “I am proud to have the support of Assemblywoman Nily Rozic. Since her impressive victory nearly one year ago, Nily has epitomized the meaning of public service, fighting tirelessly on behalf of the middle class families who elected her to fight for them in Albany and here in Queens. I look forward to working with her on the everyday issues that bind us all.”
Vallone has also been endorsed by U.S. Senator Charles Schumer, former Congressmember Gary Ackerman, Congressmembers Joseph Crowley, Steve Israel and Grace Meng, Queens Borough President Helen Marshall, state Senator Toby Ann Stavisky, Assemblymembers Michael Simanowitz, Ed Braunstein and Ron Kim, Councilmembers Mark Weprin and Peter Koo, the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, the Uniformed Fire Officers Association and numerous labor unions and community groups.
