Upper West Side City Council Member Gale Brewer is running for Manhattan Borough President, and her campaign recently announced that she has received endorsements in that race from Assemblymembers Dick Gottfried and Brian Kavanagh, feminist writer and activist Gloria Steinem, former Council Member and Manhattan Borough President Ruth Messinger, former Lieutenant Governor Mary Anne Krupsak, and former Assemblymember Ed Sullivan.
“Gale is a unique and prodigious worker. She has a long and consistent record of activism and involvement in a broad range of community issues,” Gottfried, who represents parts of the Upper West Side, Clinton/ Hell’s Kitchen, Times Square, Chelsea, and the Flatiron neighborhoods, said.
“Gale’s four decades of service to New York City and progressive values are what set her apart in this race,” said Steinem. “Her Paid Sick Leave bill is a testament to her commitment to New York’s working families.”
“I am proud to receive the endorsements of these respected and remarkable leaders who have made a lasting mark throughout New York City and beyond,” Brewer said. “I am grateful for their support.”
Brewer is running in the Democratic primary against fellow Council Members Jessica Lappin, who represents the Upper East Side, and Robert Jackson, who represents Northern Manhattan, as well as former chair of community board 1 Julie Menin.
