News: Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez' Statement Regarding Victory in NY 7
For immediate release: Wednesday, June 27, 2012
"Last night's victory is a victory for independent politics and democratic values. It is a victory for the voters who knew exactly what was at stake in this election. Now, more than ever, an independent fighter is needed to get things done for all the communities in the diverse 7th District. I intend to do what I have done for the last 20 years, and that is fight for our families and continue to defend affordable housing, green spaces, small businesses and our immigrant communities."
