Governor David Paterson endorses Councilman Fernando Cabrera for Bronx Borough President

Former NY Gov. David Paterson Endorses Cabrera for Bronx Borough President;
 ‘Fernando Will Fight to Make Sure the Bronx Gets What It Deserves’
Former New York Gov. David Paterson today endorsed Fernando Cabrera for Bronx borough president in the upcoming June 22nd Democratic primary.
In his endorsement of Cabrera – a pastor, substance abuse counselor and District 14 Council Member since 2010 – Paterson cited his focus on affordability, safety, and opportunity.
“Fernando Cabrera has an ‘Affordability Agenda’ that is meeting the crisis that is most critical to Bronxites, who are being priced out of where they live,” said Paterson, a former state senator, lieutenant governor and governor from 2008-10.
“I have known Fernando for many years and I can tell you that, both in Albany and City Hall, he has proven himself to be an effective and compassionate advocate for the communities he represents. Fernando will fight to make sure the Bronx gets what it deserves.”
Cabrera, meanwhile, welcomed the endorsement.
“I’m honored to have the endorsement of a pathbreaker like Gov. Paterson, who himself had to lead during a time of crisis. Our fight to recover from COVID-19 and years of institutional neglect of the Bronx is gaining in momentum as we maintain our focus on what really matters: Building a Bronx that is more affordable, more prosperous and safer,” Cabrera said.
