MAYOR’S RACE ROUNDUP: Espillat endorses Adams, Stringer unveils noise plan


Less than a month out from the June 22 primary, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams picked up a big endorsement Sunday in his pursuit to become the city’s next mayor.

Congressman Adriano Espaillat announced his support for Adams during an appearance with the candidate outside United Palace in Washington Heights. Adams also received on Sunday endorsements from a slate of prominent Dominican and Puerto Rican New Yorkers in public office, including Assemblywoman Carmen De La Rosa and City Council Members Diana Ayala and Oswald Feliz — whom Adams also cross-endorsed as they seek election to the City Council.

“New Yorkers need a mayor who truly understands what they are going through—and can guide us through this recovery while repairing the inequalities that existed before COVID,” Espaillat said. “Eric Adams has lived the life of the people who need help right now and is the leader for this moment. Eric will unite this city and deliver the safer, healthier, more prosperous city all New Yorkers deserve.”
