Community Free Democrats (CFD), the largest Democratic organization on the Upper West Side, announced its endorsement of Marc Landis for New York City Council. CFD is the first neighborhood-based organization to endorse a candidate for City Council in District 6. Landis received 70 votes, representing 81 percent of the votes cast – an unsurprising result considering Landis also serves a District Leader for CFD.
“Marc has always been a champion of our progressive values, a leader for the West Side, and a fighter for working families,” said Tim Foley, CFD President. “We’re willing to work as hard for him to become our next City Council Member as he always has for social justice.”
“Marc Landis is a lifelong community activist, and I’m thrilled that his dedication to the Upper West Side has earned him this endorsement,” said Senator Adriano Espaillat, who previously endorsed Landis. “Community Free Democrats has been a tremendous force for our neighborhood, organizing service projects, hosting forums to educate West Siders about policy debates, and working to elect candidates that will lead on progressive issues.”
