Team de Blasio just received another endorsement from a great political club in upper Manhattan — the Barack Obama Democratic Club! BODC is a growing progressive political club representing Washington Heights, West Harlem, Hamilton Heights and Inwood, and we’re thrilled to have them join us on the campaign trail this year.
“Our community is ignored and abused by the current administration — but Bill de Blasio has consistently refused to overlook a single neighborhood in this city,” said Obie Bing, President of the Barack Obama Democratic Club. “We need a mayor who will reform Stop and Frisk, repair our education system, and restore affordable housing to upper Manhattan — and Bill de Blasio is that leader.”
On Friday afternoon, the executive council of 1199SEIU, NYC's biggest union and the biggest healthcare union in the nation, voted to endorse Bill de Blasio -- and the vote was unanimous.
The truth is, the choice was clear for us.
Bill de Blasio is a principled champion of working people. He has the strongest vision for our city's future -- one that includes good jobs, affordable housing, quality education, healthcare, and dignity for all -- and he has the energy to make that vision a reality.
He is the authentic progressive choice.
I'm thrilled to announce that Brooklyn’s Independent Neighborhood Democrats — one of the largest political clubs in brownstone Brooklyn — endorsed Bill de Blasio for mayor! We’re excited to have a club from Bill and Chirlane’s very own neighborhood joining us on Team de Blasio.
“As our Public Advocate and as a valuable member of our community, Bill de Blasio has consistently fought for expanded affordable housing and true universal early education — and we’re proud to endorse him for mayor,” said Hal Friedman, President of Independent Neighborhood Democrats. “It is far past time we had a mayor who sends his children to local public schools, comes from the outer boroughs and understands, firsthand, the issues that matter most to middle and working-class New Yorkers.”
