Why We Support Debra
Debra has proven capable of working with a diverse group of people and maintaining a pragmatic approach. I have seen firsthand her commitment and hard work to her community and the residents of Queens. It is that same dedication she will bring to City Hall. Debra is the right choice on the key issues including senior services, education, and quality of life.
I have known Debra for many years to be an advocate in her community fighting for the needs of eastern Queens and operating within municipal government. Debra’s vast experience in public service is needed as New York faces unprecedented challenges.
"Debra has been a fierce advocate for her community for more years than I can count,” he said in a statement. “Her passion and commitment for New York City, and her record of getting things done for Queens are exactly the kind of traits we need in City Hall to get us back on track.
Debra is deeply committed to improving the quality of life for Queens residents. There is no one more experienced and qualified to represent the residents of Council District 23 in tackling COVID-19, keeping the city safe and taking care of our seniors. Debra has my full support and I look forward to working with her in the City Council.
Debra is a dedicated public servant who knows how to lead. I have had the pleasure of working with her to serve Queens communities for many years. With New York facing unprecedented challenges, I can think of no one better to serve than Debra Markell. We so need women with professionalism and experience to step up to elected office. That and Debbie's compassion, and resilience make me proud to endorse her for City Council.
I am proud to endorse Debra Markell for New York City Council. Debra is a fierce champion of her community. She is hands down the finest person torepresent the people of Council District 23.
