FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: TRUE BLUE NY ENDORSES TIFFANY CABÁN FOR QUEENS COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY
June 21st, 2019, Brooklyn, NY — True Blue NY is pleased to announce our endorsement of Tiffany Cabán for Queens County District Attorney.
Since our founding in February 2017, True Blue NY has only endorsed one candidate for an office other than New York State Senate. That candidate was Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Like Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, Tiffany Cabán is an extraordinary candidate whose progressive vision for Queens has inspired activists, voters and politicians across the country.
For decades, the Queens District Attorney’s office has been stuck in an outdated vision of criminal justice. We now have a rare opportunity to elect a District Attorney who will institute progressive and just reforms that would make this office a model for other boroughs, as well as the rest of the country.
Queens needs a leader who will fight for underserved, vulnerable and marginalized communities, implement innovative reforms, and protect people from unjust over-policing, ICE, and civil rights abuses. We urge Queens voters to support Tiffany Cabán for Queens DA in the Democratic primary on June 25th.
