State Assemblyman Daniel Rosenthal (Dem - District 27) endorsed Sandra Ung for City Council in the 20th Council District, whose district borders the 27th Assembly District.
State Assemblyman Rosenthal is the youngest sitting representative in the New York State Legislature. Throughout his tenure, he has been a steadfast advocate for funding our educational institutions and libraries. The two met in front of the historic Free Synagogue of Flushing to announce the endorsement.
Sandra Ung said, “I am humbled to receive Assemblyman Daniel Rosenthal’s endorsement. The Assemblyman has been a steadfast advocate for funding vital community institutions like libraries, and I look forward to working with him to continue this work for our community.”
"Sandra has the experience, ideas, and conviction to be the leader we need in the City Council," said Assemblymember Daniel Rosenthal. "With our city in crisis, we need more leaders like Sandra who truly put community service before anything else. I am proud to endorse her candidacy for City Council."
The Assemblyman joins fellow Assemblypersons Catalina Cruz, Ed Braunstein and Nily Rozic in their endorsement of Sandra Ung, as well as Congresswoman Grace Meng, State Senator Toby Stavisky and Councilpersons Peter Koo, Costa Constantinides, Justin Brannan and Carlina Rivera.
The Assemblyman’s endorsement shows a growing wave of support behind Sandra Ung’s candidacy. Through her extensive activism on the part of her community, she has built strong relationships with both elected officials and community leaders.
If elected, Sandra will prioritize quality of life issues in the community, including restoring the Sanitation department’s budget and fully funding local schools.
