New York, NY - Today, every East Side Democratic Club endorsed Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney for re-election. Lexington Democratic Club, East River Democrats, Four Freedoms Democratic Club, Eleanor Roosevelt Democratic Club, Samuel J. Tilden Democratic Club, and Gramercy Stuyvesant Independent Democrats all endorsed the Congresswoman in her campaign for re-election to represent New York’s 12th Congressional District.

"The Lexington Democratic Club is proud to endorse Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, a trailblazer who has fought for New York City her entire career and has consistently delivered results to our community. She has an unparalleled track record of accomplishments in Washington and here at home on every issue from transportation infrastructure to providing healthcare for 9/11 first responders. We need her in Congress to keep standing up for New York values, passing more bills than almost anyone like she has her whole career, and working tirelessly to ensure our city gets the funding we deserve from the federal government as we continue our recovery from the coronavirus pandemic,” Jacob Tugendrajch, President, Lexington Democratic Club.

“Carolyn Maloney has been an East Sider’s best advocate in the halls of Congress and in our community. From the beautification of the East River Esplanade to the successful completion of Phase 1 of the 2nd Avenue Subway (and on to Phase 2), Carolyn is a tireless fighter for all New Yorkers,” said East River Democratic Club.

“Carolyn is a longtime friend of Samuel J. Tilden Democratic Club who has shown up time and time again for our club and community’s efforts. She is a dogmatic, pragmatic, and effective legislator whose legislative capabilities are as impressive as her deep knowledge of our community. Because of that, we are proud to endorse her in her campaign for re-election,” said Samuel J. Tilden Democratic Club.

“Carolyn Maloney’s dedication to Manhattan’s East Side is an outstanding testament to her tenacity and track record of accomplishment. When many of our club members wanted to convert an empty lot on East 78th Street to a public garden, Carolyn was one of the first elected officials standing with us in our fight. Four Freedoms is proud to endorse her in her campaign for re-election,” said Four Freedoms Democratic Club.

“GSID enthusiastically supports Carolyn Maloney for re-election because when our community calls, she answers. She led 2 successful fights in Stuyvesant Town against big real estate, helped secure the money for the L train repairs after Hurricane Sandy which so many of our club members rely on, and has secured billions for City hospitals including Bellevue Hospital. Carolyn knows us and we know her,” Gramercy Stuyvesant Independent Democrats.

“I am deeply grateful for the overwhelming support from many of my long time East Side partners in my campaign for re-election,” said Rep. Maloney. “Club members are community leaders who have all impacted my work in Congress, and this backing is a testament to the deep ties we have all created with each other and will continue to foster.”
