Velázquez and Clarke Endorse Bill de Blasio for Brooklyn BP

McBrooklyn received a press release today that reads in part:

Congresswomen Nydia M. Velázquez and Yvette Clarke announced their endorsement of Bill de Blasio for Brooklyn Borough President today at a press conference at City Hall. Together the Congresswomen represent Brooklyn neighborhoods including Brownsville, Bushwick, Crown Heights, East Flatbush, Flatbush, Greenpoint, Kensington, Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Red Hook, Sunset Park and Williamsburg.

"Time and again I have joined Congresswomen Nydia Velázquez and Yvette Clarke in standing up for Brooklyn families. Together we have fought to make housing in Brooklyn more affordable for working families, to improve our public schools, to expand access to child care and to ensure that every family in Brooklyn has access to quality healthcare. I have deep respect and admiration for them and am honored to stand with them and receive their endorsement today,” said Councilmember Bill de Blasio.

Including anticipated matching funds, the campaign has raised nearly $1 million dollars.
