NEW YORK — Leaders of the Working Families Party in New York City announced their support for Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer’s campaign for Comptroller today. The WFP nomination will give Stringer the party’s ballot line in November and the support of the party’s grassroots activist base.
“Whether it’s paid sick days, living wages or reforming stop and frisk, Scott Stringer has shown courage and conviction,” said Bill Lipton, WFP Deputy Director. “Especially after Hurricane Sandy, there’s no one we trust more to help rebuild our city in a way that works for working families.”
Stringer is the first city-wide candidate who has earned WFP support for the 2013 cycle.
The Working Families Party is an independent grassroots party that fights for working-class, middle-class and poor families. WFP evaluates the records of all the candidates and supports those who stand up for issues like creating good jobs, making healthcare more affordable, quality public schools and fair taxes.
