Dickens nabs early support in Harlem council race as The New Majority unveils endorsement slate


Assembly Member Inez Dickens (D-Manhattan), who’s challenging sitting City Council Member Kristin Richardson Jordan for her Harlem seat, was among the first 27 early endorsees for this year’s elections from a group whose mission is to maintain and expand the council’s women-majority.

The New Majority NYC, the group formerly known as 21 in 21, also endorsed Susan Zhuang as its number one choice to represent the open newly reconfigured Council District 43, which was redrawn as an Asian-majority district, and Wai Yee Chan as its second. The organization is ranking its choices for certain council seats in keeping with the city’s ranked choice voting system.
