The New York County Democratic Committee is proud to announce our endorsements for the upcoming elections.

For New York City comptroller, we enthusiastically support Scott Stringer, who currently serves as Manhattan Borough President.

For District Attorney, we have endorsed Cy Vance.

Finally, we have endorsed John Kelly, Mary Rosado, Ann O’Shea and Dakota Ramseur for civil court.

We feel that each of these candidates is the correct choice for their respective positions. We offer our full support and look forward to seeing them elected in November.
