Margaret Chin doesn’t exactly have a lot of anxiety about her prospects in the upcoming General Election. She shouldn’t have much trouble prevailing over Republican Irene Horvath, her opponent in the District 1 City Council contest. Nevertheless, she was happy to have gotten the “official” endorsements of several key Downtown Democrats this afternoon.
Chin, who knocked off incumbent Alan Gerson in last month’s Primary, won the support today of Assemblyman Brian Kavanagh, State Senator Daniel Squadron and City Councilmember Rosie Mendez. All three politicians refrained from making endorsements leading up to the Primary.
They appeared alongside tenant advocates Marie Christopher and Harvey Epstein at 210 Stanton, a building that has been a focal point in the fight for affordable housing.
We’ll post the video from today’s event in a day or two.
