Recently, Council Member and Brooklyn Borough President candidate Antonio Reynoso announced that he has received the endorsement of all orthodox Jewish sects in Williamsburg, including both Satmar factions.
“I am so honored to receive the endorsement of the orthodox sects in Williamsburg and ready to carry on our work of making Brooklyn a place where all people, of all faiths and backgrounds, can thrive,” said Reynoso while making the announcement. “I thank Rabbi David Niederman and Rabbi Moishe Indig for their support of our campaign. As the Council Member representing the 34th Council District, the Satmar community and I have a history of working together, and I look forward to continuing our partnership at Borough Hall, where together, we’ll fight for action to address hate crimes, truly affordable housing, supportive childcare, and a just COVID recovery.”
Speaking about the endorsement, Rabbi Niederman said “For the past several years, we’re working closely with Councilman Antonio Reynoso who was very helpful with issues facing our community. Antonio is a hard worker and showed an eagerness to understand all communities in the area. That’s why we decided to endorse Antonio as our first choice for Borough President. We feel that all communities in Brooklyn will be well served by his energetic leadership.”
As it stands, the 2021 New York City Borough president elections will be held on the 2nd of November.
