VOTE THIS TUESDAY FOR NYDIA IN NY7 & BRING A FRIEND! - A call for Election Day volunteers
I am proud to announce that President Obama, Governor Cuomo, Senator Schumer, Senator Gillibrand, NY Assembly Speaker Silver, Mayor Ed Koch, and Former Bronx BP Fernando Ferrer, among others, plus the NY Times, NY Post, NY Daily News, El Diario, Amsterdam News and local papers throughout the boroughs, have all endorsed my re-election.
The challenge now is to let the voters in my newly drawn district know what the President of the United States, all of New York's top national and state elected officials and NY's premier newspapers said. With only days left, we don't have much time left to get the word out.
President Obama said: "For the past two decades, Rep. Nydia Velázquez has been a constant advocate for middle-class families... [She] has worked tirelessly to create good middle-class jobs ... provide affordable housing ... and invest in education... The people of NY's 7th Congressional need to re-elect Rep. Velázquez so that she can keep fighting for them in Congress."
Governor Cuomo said: "Nydia is one of New York's strongest advocates in Washington and she has proven time and again that she gets things done. Whether it is bringing much needed federal dollars for public housing, education and our green spaces or leading the charge to pass the Dream Act in the House, she can always be counted on to deliver results."
Senator Schumer said: "Nydia has been a great partner in Washington...From the landmark appointment of Sonia Sotomayor to saving affordable housing for thousands...to leading the charge on the Dream Act. I am proud to stand with her today and look forward to many more years of fighting together for New Yorkers."
Senator Gillibrand said "We need more women's voices at the decision making table in government...While I have been encouraging more women to consider running for office themselves, it is equally important that we send extraordinary women like Nydia back to Washington."
The critical things you can do:

Nydia M. Velázquez
Member of Congress
