DA Katz endorsed by eight Queens City Council members in re-election bid


Eight members of the Queens City Council delegation, including Speaker Adrienne Adams, endorsed Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz for re-election, her campaign announced on May 11.

The elected leaders, from every corner of the borough, cited the DA’s efforts to engage communities, get guns off the streets, fight human trafficking, reduce gang violence, address domestic abuse, prosecute wage theft and protect workers, seniors, immigrants and youth.

“Throughout her career in public service, Melinda Katz has proven that she knows how to get results,” Adams said. “With Queens residents’ concerns about crime and fairness in our criminal justice system, Melinda has taken the lead to make our streets safer while protecting our rights.”
