For Immediate Release
June 25, 2012 — New York, NY — Today the 504 Democratic Club, which represents the needs and interests of New Yorkers with disabilities, announced that it is endorsing Joyce Johnson for Congress in the 13th Congressional District. Citing Joyce’s stellar track record advocating and mobilizing on behalf of important issues impacting these communities, Club President Chris Noel stated that she is the best candidate to represent the people of Upper Manhattan and the Bronx on Capitol Hill.
“The 504 North Star Democratic Club voted to endorse for the 13th Congressional District, candidate Joyce Johnson, based on her views and experiences in dealing with the growing population of seniors and people with disabilities in Harlem, Washington Heights, and the Bronx communities,” said Noel. “As a candidate who cares about the needs, and desires to help improve access to affordable housing and healthcare for this vital group of people with disabilities and seniors, we applaud her efforts to do so once elected into office”.
About today’s endorsement, Joyce said, “I am grateful for the support of the 504 Democratic Club, an organization that has long been an agent of change in our communities. Their announcement today further underscores that District voters are ready for a new era of leadership, one that will put them first above political self-interests. Once elected to office I will not waste any time getting to work uniting our District, and fighting for the issues most important to everyone, such as job creation, immigration reform, bettering our schools, and protecting and advancing the rights of seniors, people with disabilities, women and people of color. I urge everyone to get out tomorrow and vote for me, the only candidate in this race who will make Congress work for them.”
Over the next 24 hours, Joyce will continue meeting with voters across the 13th District about the concerns most important to them. Today at 5:30pm she will be greeting strap-hangers at 125th Street and Malcolm X Boulevard.
