“Going back to her time as a teacher in East Harlem, Congresswoman Maloney has a proven track record of delivering for our East Harlem community.

Now as our member of Congress coming back to represent our District, I know she will deliver on her promise to expand the 2nd Avenue Subway to 125th Street. I am proud to both receive the Congresswoman’s endorsement and endors
e her for re-election,” said Senator Cordell Cleare.
“I am deeply grateful for Senator Cleare’s endorsement and am proud to endorse her for re-election. This is an especially meaningful partnership as East Harlem has played an integral part in my life as a public servant,” said Rep. Maloney. “I began my career in East Harlem as a teacher, and it is where I first saw how government can be a force of good in people’s lives. I am thrilled to be running for re-election bac
k in East Harlem in the newly redrawn NY-12 with the Senator’s support. I look forward to partnering together to complete major projects like finally expanding the 2nd Avenue Subway to 125th Street. Thank you, Senator!”
