Congresswoman Grace Meng on Friday, May 14, endorsed Queens Borough President Donovan Richards’ bid for reelection. 

Meng called Richards as an “extraordinary leader” who fights every day to make life better for Queens residents. 

“In just his first few months in office, he has traveled throughout our great borough, meeting with residents from across many different communities, and doing all he can to make Queens the best that it can be,” Meng said. “He has worked tirelessly to help hardworking families, assist small businesses, expand affordable housing, and has strongly stood in solidarity with the Asian American community in our fight against the rise in hate and violence.” 

As they work to move past the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Meng, it is critical to have Richards leading the borough to ensure recovery and to get Queens back on its feet again.
