Borough President Richards endorses Queens DA Katz for re-election


Queens Borough President Donovan Richards endorsed the re-election campaign of Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz Thursday, March 2.

As a city councilman, Richards chaired the Public Safety Committee, where he pushed for a fair justice system, often working with Katz while she served as Queens borough president.

“For me, Queens public safety is personal. I grew up in southeast Queens and got involved in politics when a close friend of mine as a teenager lost his life to gun violence,” Richards said. “Melinda Katz has served the residents of Queens diligently as their district attorney and I know her dedication to public safety is just as fervent as mine.”
