Mayoral hopeful Kathryn Garcia scores big endorsement from Queens lawmaker Nily Rozic


Mayoral hopeful Kathryn Garcia got a significant endorsement in Queens Thursday as local Assemblywoman Nily Rozic — who had initially endorsed City Comptroller Scott Stringer — shifted her support to the former sanitation commissioner. 

Rozic had rescinded her support for Stringer after a woman came forward accusing him of sexual harassment last week.

Standing under the iconic Unisphere in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, Rozic said this mayoral election was the most important in her lifetime, and that it was critical to have someone in charge who has the experience and knowledge to cut through bureaucratic red tape and get things done.
