Councilman Paul Vallone announced that he’s been endorsed by the Queens County Democratic Party for his re-election bid.
Vallone stood by Congressman Joseph Crowley, who leads the Queens Democratic Party, in what he called one of the proudest moments for him and his family.
“Representing my district has been the best four years of my life,” Vallone said. “We have put Northeast Queens not only back on the map, but on top of it.”
Vallone is the son of former Council Speaker Peter F. Vallone and brother of former Councilman Peter Vallone, Jr. Vallone chairs the Council’s Subcommittee on Senior Centers.
According to the New York City Campaign Finance Board listings, Paul Graziano is the only challenger Vallone faces right now.
“I am once again reaffirming my commitment to preserve our quality of life here in our community and continuously support our schools, public safety, veterans and seniors,” he added. “Let’s finish the work we have started together.”
