Carlina Rivera Endorses Alessandra Biaggi For State Senate
Councilwoman Carlina Rivera is endorsing Alessandra Biaggi for State Senate in District 34 in the Democratic primary on Thursday, September 13.
“As Co-Chair of the Council’s Women’s Caucus, I am inspired by Alessandra’s brave decision to stand up and fight back against the leader of the IDC with progressive policies that will help women, seniors, and low-income communities continue to be able to live and thrive in the Bronx,” Rivera said. “I am so proud to endorse Alessandra, who will actually work to change Albany, unlike the turncoat Democrat who currently occupies this seat and lets gridlock and corporate donors dictate policy. Alessandra is the ally we need in Albany who will stand up to the Trump agenda with real ideas, like universal health care and a real funding solution for the MTA, that lift up everyone.”
“I’m excited to be endorsed by Carlina Rivera, a long time community activist and fighter for progressive change,” Biaggi said. “I look forward to working with Carlina and other members of the City Council to fight for affordable housing, protecting tenants with strong rent laws, ensuring full funding for our schools, funding an MTA that works for all New Yorkers, and establishing affordable healthcare for all.”
