[New York Politics 2010]
New York City Comptroller John Liu announced today that he is endorsing the candidacy of Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice. The endorsement gives the Democratic DA a powerful nod from a trailblazing official who himself won a crowded New York City Democratic primary just one year ago.
“Kathleen Rice is progressive, she’s tough and she will be an excellent attorney general,” said Comptroller Liu. “From her work taking on corrupt public officials and sexual predators, to her tireless commitment to protecting consumers, immigrants and taxpayers from fraud, Kathleen has proven that she is the candidate most capable of reforming Albany and most capable of managing an office that is so vital to New York families. In addition to her unrivaled law enforcement and legal experience, there is no doubt that Kathleen gives our party the best chance to keep this office inprogressive hands after November. She’s got my support and I look forward to campaigning hard with her over the next week.”
“Comptroller Liu represents all that is great about New York: our diversity, our progressive politics and our passion for electing leaders who seek to improve the lives of those around them,” said District Attorney Rice. “Few endorsements will mean more to my campaign or this race than this one, and I’m honored and humbled to receive it. I look forward to working with Comptroller Liu to make government more transparent, fiscally responsible and useful for all New Yorkers.”
As the first Asian American citywide elected official in New York City and an outspoken advocate for civil rights and justice matters, Comptroller Liu helps solidify the significant support Rice has received from leading New York progressive leaders and groups like Gloria Steinem, RWDSU President Stuart Appelbaum, the National Organization for Women NYS PAC and Marriage Equality New York.
