Calls her a principled independent voice who fights for New York City

New York – Today, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg endorsed Liz Krueger (D-Manhattan) for reelection to the State Senate. “Liz Krueger is the kind of independent, principled and smart legislator we need working in Albany for New York City,” said Mayor Bloomberg. “Liz has been a leader in the fight for more ethical government and more responsible fiscal policy, and as a constituent, I know how hard she works to address the concerns of residents of the East Side and Midtown Manhattan.”

Mayor Bloomberg stressed Senator Krueger’s independence as a key reason for his support. “Liz really stands out in Albany. She has demonstrated a willingness to put principle above politics and stand up to those she thinks are wrong, even when they are members of her own party,” said Mayor Bloomberg . “Of course we don’t always agree, either –but I know, first-hand, how hard she works to understand the issues we face as a City.

“With all the problems New Yorkers have with Albany, we really need Liz Krueger up there fighting for us. She is the kind of public servant we need more of, and I am proud that she is my State Senator.”
