Jumaane Williams

Jumaane was elected New York City Public Advocate in 2019 on a platform of truly affordable, income targeted housing, anti-gun violence measures, fair policing, equity, and social justice issues. In the City Council, Jumaane passed nearly 70 bills to help build a more equitable, sustainable, and livable New York. He passed landmark legislation to curb the NYPD’s abuse of stop-and-frisk, championed strategies to reduce gun violence, advanced housing justice, and helped protect women’s reproductive rights.

Jumaane has quickly made his mark on the office of Public Advocate, restructuring the office to empower staff to prioritize community engagement, outreach, and service. He also passed more legislation in his first 2 years in office than any Public Advocate has in history, including key bills that protect New Yorkers in the workplace and those looking for work, shield struggling homeowners from undue tax burdens, promote public safety, and fight discrimination in our housing systems.

Now, Jumaane is running for Governor to bring transformational change to Albany.

Tom Suozzi

Congressman Tom Suozzi is a common-sense Democrat who has the experience to get the job done as Governor of New York.

He is currently a member of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, the chief tax-writing committee of the House of Representatives.

Tom was elected Glen Cove Mayor in 1993. At just 31, he was the youngest mayor in the City’s history. He restored Glen Cove’s ailing fiscal health, securing numerous record-breaking credit ratings. He revitalized the City’s downtown business district, spurred massive commercial development, and built a new courthouse, city hall, and police headquarters.

He spearheaded a $100 million clean-up of some of America’s most toxic superfund sites. That waterfront area is now a showcase of residential, commercial, and recreational development. Glen Cove was designated as a national Brownfields Showcase Community and recognized twice by Vice-President Al Gore for its environmental cleanup efforts.
