Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney Running for Re-Election to Continue Representing NY’s 12th District

New York, NY — Following the release of the special master’s final maps, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney confirms that she will continue running for re-election in New York’s 12th District.

“I am excited to announce that I will be running to continue to represent the 12th Congressional District. A majority of the communities in the newly redrawn NY-12 are ones I have represented for years and to which I have deep ties. In fact, I currently represent over 60% of the new NY-12. Regardless of who’s jumping into the race with our new maps, I know I’m the right leader for the people of New York’s 12th district, and I plan on running and winning come August 23rd.

I am proud of my record of delivering results for my district, and I’m not done fighting for New York City. In the wake of the outrageous draft from SCOTUS, I will work harder than ever to protect a woman’s right to choose and pass the Equal Rights Amendment. I have consistently been ranked as one of the most effective members of Congress by independent good governance groups.

Too often qualified and accomplished women have been told to stand aside for the sake of men’s egos. But I have a lifetime of experience standing up to powerful men. I was the first woman elected to represent NY’s 12th District, the first woman to give birth while serving in the NYC Council, and the first woman to Chair the House Oversight Committee— and I refuse to be pushed around. I’m not scared of a fight. I’m ready to go above and beyond to earn the votes of the new NY-12 and make sure my constituents have the leader they deserve.”
