In an email to supports and community members, Community Board 2 Chair Brad Hoylman announced today to supporters that retiring state senator Tom Duane has endorsed him to take over Duane’s soon-to-be-vacant seat.
Highlighting this weekend’s annual New York City Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride March, Hoylman noted, “The Pride March has always been a special event for me. This year it’ll be even more meaningful as I seek election to the Senate seat occupied by State Senator Tom Duane, one of our community’s greatest leaders and champions . . . I’m especially pleased to announce that this morning, to kick off Pride weekend, Tom endorsed me to succeed him.”
In an official statement, Senator Duane said, “He shares my progressive values and commitment to reform, and he has devoted the last two decades to serving our community. I know he will continue to champion so many of the causes that I have fought for throughout my career.”
Hoylman has also received Assembly Member Deborah Glick’s endorsement, and will be walking with both pols in the Pride March on Sunday. Spot them lining up at 12:30 pm on East 39th Street between Madison and Park Avenues.
