DA Katz lands endorsements from pair of Queens Congress members in re-election bid


A week after Queens Borough President Donovan Richards endorsed the re-election campaign of Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz, two longtime members of Congress have followed suit.

Congresswoman Grace Meng and Congressman Gregory Meeks threw their support behind Katz who is facing a challenge in June’s Democratic primary.

“Melinda Katz is a true advocate for Queens County, and her team in the district attorney’s office has done great work getting guns off our streets and prosecuting dangerous offenders all while making our criminal justice system fairer,” Meng said. “I am proud to endorse Melinda Katz because that leadership has become indispensable to Queens families and I’m excited to continue our work together.”
