Candidates receive endorsement from Citizen Action’s community-led board

New York, NY – After a successful 2019 legislative session that saw the passage of historic housing reforms, Citizen Action of New York’s New York City chapter announced its endorsement of Diana Richardson for re-election in the 43rd Assembly District. 

“Diana Richardson has been an absolute champion on housing. There is no one who has had a louder voice and fought harder than she has in the Assembly,” said Christina Sparrock, a member leader with Citizen Action. “Without her leadership, I doubt we would have the housing package that was passed last session. We are proud to endorse her for re-election.” 

“I am proud to receive the support and endorsement of Citizen Action of New York. They have long been a statewide leader, and a true progressive voice in New York City,” said Assemblymember Diana Richardson
