‘Brooklyn Coalition’ Forms To Support Scott Stringer For Mayor

The “Brooklyn for Stringer” coalition, announced Friday, is the latest endorsement for the comptroller in the borough.

Comptroller Scott Stringer has gained the support of a prominent coalition of Brooklyn elected officials in his search for the mayoral bid.

The comptroller joined Assembly Member Nick Perry, Assembly Member Diana Richardson and a group of faith leaders in the borough Friday to announce their endorsement and the start of the “Brooklyn for Stringer” coalition, which includes a number of other elected officials.

“New York City needs a mayor who leads by example and walks the walk,” Richardson said, noting Stringer’s action on affordable housing, criminal justice and the coronavirus pandemic. “…That’s the tenacity Comptroller Stringer will bring to City Hall — and he’s the fighter New Yorkers need standing up for them. With enthusiasm, I endorse Scott Stringer for mayor.”

The Brooklyn for Stringer coalition includes State Senators Julia Salazar and Brian Kavanagh, Assemblymembers Robert Carroll and Maritza Davila and U.S. Rep. Jerry Nadler, whose district includes Stringer’s native Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn. The coalition plans to organize voters throughout the borough, Stringer’s campaign said.
