State Sen. Jose Peralta’s campaign for Queens Borough President has already picked up endorsements from Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. and his colleague in the Senate, Adriano Espaillat. Today, Assemblyman Karim Camara, the Chair of the New York State Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic, and Asian Legislative Caucus, added his name to the list.
“I’m proud to be joining Jose Peralta’s campaign because Queens needs a leader who will fight for every neighborhood and every community across the borough,” Camara said. “I know first hand that Jose will fight to make every school a great school and that all Queens residents, no matter where they come from, have the opportunity to succeed.”
Peralta is up against a crowded field of candidates to replace retiring Borough President Helen Marshall, including City Council members Leroy Comrie, Melinda Katz, and Peter Vallone, Jr., as well as state Sen. Tony Avella and Deputy Borough President Barry Grodenchik.
