Selvena has the experience, the intellect and the strength to deliver for us, every day, because she’s been preparing for this job her whole life. From high ranking jobs in state government, to combating domestic violence for the City, to working at Peninsula Hospital, serving in the labor movement and supporting MWBEs during the JFK Redevelopment, Selvena knows how to get things done. And through all of this, she has volunteered for our local youth, distributed PPE’s and fresh food during the pandemic, and worked to prevent gun violence. I hope I can count on you to join me in voting for her as your number one on February 23rd.

When we vote we are putting our faith into action by making an active choice about who represents our community. I believe making Selvena Brooks-Powers our number one choice on the ballot during early voting and on February 23 puts the community in the best position to win when you look at her experience working in government and her record of serving the community.

"We are facing some of the toughest times in NYC history and, unfortunately, tough times aren't new to us. Our communities continuously get neglected and abused by the City. That isn't going to change unless we come together as a united and organized force. We need steady and strong leadership during these times of uncertainty. I'm proud to support Selvena in her re-election to City Council because I trust her. As a mother and a Black woman she is bringing a perspective that doesn't often get to the table of leadership. Selvena is a breath of fresh air. She knows how to bring people together and leverage that power. I trust when given a full term, she is going to make sure that our district doesn't get overlooked and we get all the resources that we deserve."

There are few people who work harder and advocate more fiercely for our communities in Southeast Queens and the Rockaways than Selvena Brooks-Powers, and I am proud to support her campaign for City Council today. Selvena will fight for what matters, from addressing public safety, especially in places like Springfield Gardens, Rosedale and Laurelton. She will work to create opportunities for the second chance populations, access to healthcare and food security for the most vulnerable among us, and she will deliver.

Selvena will be ready to tackle inequality, inadequate technology resources for our students during remote learning, insufficient healthcare access across the city, and unemployment. She will be a strong advocate for all Queens families.
