Former New York Governor David Paterson, endorsed Ken Biberaj for City Council in the 6th District last week. Governor Paterson announced the endorsement in person at an event hosted by Democratic fundraiser Kristie Stiles and Democratic activist Susan Horsfall.
"Over the course of this campaign, I have regularly sought the advice and counsel of Governor Paterson about the issues that face the Upper West Side as well as our City. It is an honor to have his support in my race for the City Council," said Biberaj.
Governor Paterson stated, "I am pleased to see that there are a number of excellent candidates in this City Council race for the 6th District, which will guarantee good service to the area I used to represent. I am endorsing my close friend Ken Biberaj because he believes in a better path for his family, friends and neighbors and represents a fresh, new voice eager to engage in the civic process. In our many discussions about the issues impacting the District, Ken has displayed a pragmatic, realistic view of our economy and the times we live in, which is unique and rare, and has proven to be a forward thinker with a tremendous vision for the future of his community and their quality of life."
