Brooklyn – New York City Council candidate and education advocate, David G. Greenfield was endorsed today by Congressman Michael McMahon. Congressman McMahon represents parts of Brooklyn and Staten Island in the House of Representatives, and is the first member of Congress that represents parts of the 44th Council District to endorse a candidate in the special election to replace Simcha Felder.
“As a Congressman representing parts of this district, I have seen David Greenfield deliver results for this community time and time again,” said Congressman Michael McMahon, “David Greenfield will fight to make sure that all communities get relief from higher taxes, increased educations costs, and over-aggressive parking-ticket agents. David has the proven experience to be a leader for this community and to make New York more affordable.”
“Congressman McMahon is an independent representative who always puts the needs of his district above partisan fighting and inside-the-beltway games. When he was at the City Council and now in Congress, Congressman McMahon has the moderate and balanced approach to government that this community needs,” said Greenfield. “I will work with him to bring that approach to government to City Hall.”
In addition to the support of Congressman McMahon, Greenfield has also received the endorsements of a number of other prominent elected officials, including Mayor Michael Bloomberg, former Mayor Ed Koch, US Senator Joe Lieberman, New York State Senators Carl Kruger and Martin Golden, and Councilmen Vincent Gentile, Michael Nelson, Domenic Recchia, and Lewis Fidler. Greenfield has also received widespread support from prominent members of every ethnic community in the diverse 44th Council District, including the Catholic, Ashkenaz, Sephardic, and Hasidic communities.
