(Yonkers, NY) – Terence Miller, candidate for Yonkers City Council in the 1st District, has begun to garner the support of unions over the incumbent.
So far he has received official endorsements from the Democratic Party, the Working Families Party and AFL-CIO Westchester/Putnam Labor Body Council, with more endorsements expected by the campaign.
“The 1st district needs someone who is going to be the voice of the people, someone with experience working directly with constituents and fighting for what they deserve, as I have,” Terence shares with. “Being born and raised in Yonkers helps me understand the issues first hand and we currently do not have that.”
Terence Miller is a lifelong Yonkers resident with almost ten years of experience in advocacy, government relations, and community development. He is a graduate of Yonkers Public Schools and is passionate about the issues affecting his city.
Inspired by the historic election of President Barack Obama in 2008, Terence changed his educational track from computer science to political science and committed himself to get the necessary education that would allow him to go back to his community and bring what he states is much-needed change.
“The incumbent was initially appointed by Mayor Mike Spano in 2017,” Terence continues. “Most notably, her vote in favor of the extension of term limits and her refusal to fight against the machine for what works for the residents of the 1st District has put her at odds with her constituency.”
Terence Miller will face Councilwoman Shanae V. Williams in the June 25th Primary for Yonkers 1st District Council seat.
