Brooklyn Congressman Jeffries gives endorsement to Maya Wiley for mayor


Brooklyn Congressman Hakeem Jeffries threw his support to Maya Wiley in her bid to become the next mayor of New York City during a press conference in Brooklyn on Sunday.

Jeffries believes that Wiley, a civil rights attorney and alumna of the de Blasio Administration, is best positioned to help New York City overcome the COVID-19 pandemic and bring about systemic change in city government.

“This is a change election and Maya Wiley is a change candidate,” Jeffries said. “It’s time to send a brilliant and compassionate mom to City Hall to clean up the mess left behind by the pandemic.”
