Congratulations to our endorsed candidate Andrew Gounardes, and our district, on the #TeamGounardes primary victory! And thank you to the many members of the Bay Ridge Democrats who put in the hours to make this success possible.
Our club endorsed Andrew because he will fight for every member of our district. He has comprehensive plans to bring voices like ours to Albany by giving riders from every borough a vote on the MTA board, by targeting corruption and implementing his “Golden Rule” legislation to bar politicians from spending campaign funds for personal or family business use, by passing the Reproductive Health Act and the New York Health Act, by repealing the Urstadt Law which undermines New York City's ability to enact its own rent laws, and more.
Andrew has also received meaningful endorsements from unions such as the New York State United Teachers and 32BJ Local SEIU, as well as issues-based organizations like Moms Demand Action, the National Organization for Women and the Stonewall Democrats of New York. He has additionally garnered the support of many local elected officials and Democratic clubs throughout the city.
These are only a few examples of Andrew’s many priorities for and support within Senate District 22. The Bay Ridge Democrats are excited to keep up the canvassing, calling and public conversation to propel him into office.
