Today, City Councilman Justin Brannan endorsed Sandra Ung for City Council in the 20th Council District. Brannan, who represents the 43rd Council District, cited Sandra’s commitment to public service and history of advocacy in announcing his endorsement. Throughout his tenure on the Council, Councilman Brannan has been a champion of working and middle class families and has prioritized securing increased funding for the outer boroughs. He is also an advocate for expanding access to free test prep in schools to help students prepare for the SHSAT.
Councilman Brannan said, "As we work towards a just recovery from the pandemic, we need individuals who have devoted their lives to public service in City Hall. Both as an attorney representing victims of domestic violence and through her work in government, Sandra has a proven track record of delivering real results for New Yorkers. I am proud to endorse Sandra Ung for City Council, and I look forward to working with her to advocate for our working families."
Sandra Ung said, “I’m honored to receive the endorsement of Councilman Brannan. Councilman Brannan has been a steadfast advocate for working families in the City Council. I look forward to working with the Councilman to make sure the outer boroughs, including Queens, get their fair share of city funds.”
Sandra has long called for increased funding to be allocated to Flushing and northeast Queens. With Councilmember Brannan’s endorsement joining endorsements by City Councilpersons Carlina Rivera, Costa Constantinides, Peter Koo and Adrienne Adams, it has become clear that Sandra Ung is the only candidate in the race to replace term-limited Councilmember Koo that would be able to build a coalition of support to bring increased funding to Flushing. That funding would allow for more sanitation services, better maintained parks and more opportunities for small businesses.
Sandra has also been endorsed by Congresswoman Grace Meng, State Senator Toby Stavisky, State Assemblywoman Nily Rozic and State Assemblywoman Catalina Cruz.
