Queens assemblywoman endorses Shekar Krishnan for City Council seat


City Council candidate Shekar Krishnan has earned the endorsement of Assemblywoman Catalina Cruz in his campaign to replace Councilman Daniel Dromm and represent Elmhurst and Jackson Heights.

Cruz, who is the first DREAMer to hold elected office in New York state and has been at the forefront of civil rights issues at the state and city level for more than a decade, cited Krishnan’s own long record of successful advocacy as reason for “strong confidence in his leadership” as the 25th District’s next Council member.
