On Friday, September 1st, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo endorsed Council Member Ben Kallos for re-election to the 5th Council District, Kallos's campaign announced. Governor Cuomo highlighted Council Member Kallos's partnership on key issues such as opening the Second Avenue Subway, and his commitment to the residents of the Upper East Side and Roosevelt Island.


"Council Member Ben Kallos is my partner in local government who I can count on when we need to cut through bureaucracy and politics to do the right thing for New York City," said Governor Andrew Cuomo.

"Ben Kallos has been there with me to open the Second Avenue Subway and add new buses and select bus service to East Side bus routes. He was there with me as we fought for and won a fifteen-dollar minimum wage, paid family leave, free tuition through the Excelsior Scholarship, and as we invest in our public transit system's infrastructure. I am proud to endorse my friend Ben Kallos and know that his constituents can count on him too."

"Governor Andrew Cuomo has done so much for this state, the city, and my district," said Council Member Kallos. "He led our state to be the first to pass the strongest gun control laws in the nation and passed marriage equality. I am proud to have his support."
