Assemblymember Niou Endorses Alessandra Biaggi
Alessandra Biaggi, candidate for State Senate in District 34, received her first endorsement from a State government elected official today when she was endorsed by Assemblymember Yuh-Line Niou. Biaggi has previously been endorsed by City Comptroller Scott Stringer and City Council Speaker Corey Johnson and many progressive organizations.
Assemblymember Niou said, “I’m incredibly proud to support Alessandra Biaggi for State Senate. Not only does she have a decade of experience in advocacy and leadership, but her dedication to her home community shows that she understands the core issues of her constituency. There is no one better prepared to get the real, progressive results the working families of District 34 deserve and have long sought. For far too long, the IDC has stood in the way of basic rights like public school dollars, rent regulations protecting tenants, and protecting our most vulnerable communities from predatory financial services. I have made it my mission to make our system one that is more inclusive and transparent. What better way to continue this fight than to vote for Alessandra Biaggi on Sept. 13th?”
Alessandra Biaggi said, “It is an absolute honor to have Assemblymember Yuh-Line Niou’s support in this race. At a time when so much is on the line for hard working New Yorkers, it is refreshing to join forces with elected officials who have the courage and integrity to push for progressive leadership in our state, and to defy the cynical and self-serving politics that voters are sick to death of. I look forward to working with Assemblymember Niou in Albany to deliver for the people of New York.”
Assemblymember Niou has spent her career working on legislative and advocacy campaigns. In 2016, she was elected to serve the 65th Assembly District, representing the following lower Manhattan neighborhoods: the Lower East Side, Chinatown, South Street Seaport area, Financial District and Battery Park City.
Biaggi has already been endorsed by City Comptroller Scott Stringer and City Counsel Speaker Corey Johnson, 32BJ SEIU, UAW Region 9A and many progressive organizations.
