February 5, 2022

New York, NY - Last week, Downtown Independent Democrats, Hell's Kitchen Democrats, and Gramercy Stuyvesant Independent Democrats endorsed Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney for re-election.

“Downtown Independent Democrats is proud to have championed progressive fighters for our City, which is why we wholeheartedly support Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney for re-election,” said Downtown Independent Democrats. “Whether it is standing with us to support affordable housing efforts at 5WTC, championing women’s rights, opposing the SoHo/NoHo rezoning plan, or supporting teachers and students as a former educator herself, Congresswoman Maloney is who New York City needs as we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“Representative Carolyn Maloney has been a stalwart fighter on issues important to our community ranging from climate change to gun violence to women’s rights to housing equity,” says Christine Gorman, president of Hell’s Kitchen Democrats. “She is an experienced, steadfast, progressive voice in the U.S House of Representatives. We are excited that the new congressional boundaries will mean more residents of Hell’s Kitchen will be represented by a woman leader, and we are delighted to endorse Carolyn for New York’s 12th Congressional District.”

“Gramercy Stuyvesant Independent Democrats are proud to endorse Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney for re-election,” said Gramercy Stuyvesant Independent Democrats club leadership. “The Congresswoman has represented the needs of our community with steadfast commitment and has always represented our club’s progressive values.”

“I am honored to receive Downtown Independent Democratic Club, Hell’s Kitchen Democrats, and Gramercy Stuyvesant Independent Democrats’ endorsements,” said Rep. Maloney. “Hell's Kitchen’s rich history has played an important part in the story of New York City. Today, Hell's Kitchen simultaneously faces an affordability crisis and the overdevelopment of luxury real estate. I have also had the great fortune of working with Downtown Independent Democrats to join the community fight for affordable housing at 5WTC and opposing SoHo/NoHo rezoning proposal. Gramercy Stuyvesant Independent Democrats have been progressive stalwarts for decades, and I am eager to continue working on these and so many other issues with each club. With the new district lines, I look forward to representing even more of these dynamic communities.”
