Six Local Elected Officials and Community Leaders Endorse Alessandra Biaggi for Congress

Last month we reported that Congressman Jamaal Bowman (NY-16) of the Bronx and Westchester endorsed New York State Senator Alessandra Biaggi for U.S. Congress in New York’s third congressional district (NY-3). Congressman Bowman’s endorsement comes one day after Senator Biaggi launched her congressional campaign. 

The endorsements continue to come in. Today, State Senator Alessandra Biaggi earned endorsements from six local elected officials and community leaders in her race to represent New York’s third congressional district. Their endorsements signal the growing support Alessandra’s campaign is accumulating ahead of the June 28th primary election.

The community leaders who endorsed Alessandra’s campaign today include

  • Damon Maher, Westchester County Legislator
  • David Tubiolo, Westchester County Legislator
  • David A. Alpert, Former Chair for the Westchester Democratic Committee
  • John Doyle, Bronx District Leader
  • Marin Zielinski, Chair of the Pelham Democratic Committee 
  • Liz Peralta of Port Chester, Cofounder and Vice President of Impact at Feed Forward 

“I am thrilled to have the support of these six incredible local elected officials and community leaders. Their endorsements mirror what my team and I are hearing from communities across the district– Democrats are eager for an experienced leader with a bold vision, who will bring urgency to our country’s most important fights. With their support, I know we can successfully codify abortion rights, combat the climate crisis, and protect our democracy in Congress. Our campaign is truly people-powered, and it means the world to have the endorsements from some of the most passionate and effective community leaders in NY-3,” said Senator Alessandra Biaggi

“Alessandra has a real record successfully advancing a progressive agenda in New York’s State Senate. Let’s put her limitless energy to work for us in the U.S. House of Representatives,” said Damon Maher, Westchester County Legislator

“Today, I am proud to endorse Senator Alessandra Biaggi’s campaign for Congress. Alessandra has a deep understanding of the needs of Westchester’s working families, and she has a proven record of delivering results during her time in the State Senate. Let’s send her fighting spirit to Washington,” said David Tubiolo, Westchester County Legislator.

“Alessandra Biaggi has been a wonderful Senator for the East Bronx. She’s also been an effective change agent in Albany. Alessandra knows the issues of our borough well and I’m confident she’ll carry our values with her throughout this campaign to the halls of Congress so our voices are heard,” said John Doyle, Bronx District Leader.

“Senator Biaggi is someone who cares about the future, while recognizing that that future can’t exist without helping our most vulnerable communities today. I admire the work she has done and will support her all the way through,” said Liz Peralta, Cofounder of Feed Forward.
