Senator Bill Perkins Endorses Espaillat for Congress
Perkins Calls Espaillat the ‘True Warrior Against Gentrification in This Race’

New York, NY – Today, Senator Bill Perkins announced his support for Senator Adriano Espaillat in the race for Congress in New York’s 13th District. Perkins’ endorsement marks a significant development in the race and his support now means each state senator whose district overlaps with New York-13 has endorsed Senator Espaillat’s campaign. Senator Perkins, who hails from East Harlem represents Harlem, parts of Washington Heights and the Upper West Side.

As the campaign heads into its final days, Espaillat has siezed the momentum in the race, racking up key endorsements from high-ranking elected officials and major news editorial boards. Earlier this week, Espaillat was endorsed by the New York Daily News, amNew York, El Diario and Senate Democratic Conference Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins.

In his endorsement announcement, Perkins praised Espaillat, as someone tenants can always trust no matter the political price.

"Adriano Espaillat is the true warrior against gentrification in this race. He is a leader tenants can always trust to have their back, even when it goes against the wishes of luxury developers,” said Senator Bill Perkins. 

“In any fight for working families, Adriano is there to lead the charge. Every neighborhood-- from East Harlem to the Bronx from West Harlem to Morningside Heights and the Upper West Side--needs his tenacity in Congress right now. 

I proudly endorse Senator Espaillat, and I urge all of my neighbors who I have the privilege and honor to represent that are looking for meaningful change to support his campaign."

In accepting Senator Perkins’ endorsement, Senator Adriano Espaillat said, “I’m honored to have the trust and confidence of Senator Bill Perkins. He has fought as hard as anyone to strengthen our communities in Harlem and across upper Manhattan. 

Senator Perkins is a tremendous partner in the fight to level the playing field for tenants and all New Yorker struggling to make ends meet, and I’m thrilled to have his support in this campaign.”

With 3 days to go till Election Day, support for Adriano continues to pour in from all across our City. We are proud to announce that Council Member Julissa Ferreras-Copeland has joined the wave of support for Adriano.
