Senator Schumer Endorses Goldfeder
U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer has endorsed Democratic candidate Phil Goldfeder for the 23rd Assembly District in Queens. Appearing at a press conference in Lindenwood, Senator Schumer told scores of supporters and local residents that Goldfeder was the best candidate to attract businesses and jobs to the district.
“I’ve seen Phil in action. He’s a hard worker, a fighter and he has a deep passion for public service,” Schumer said. “Phil will take that energy to the state Assembly and he won’t rest until he tackles the number one issue on everyone’s mind – which is jobs, jobs, jobs.”
Goldfeder, who worked in Senator Schumer’s office as Director of Intergovernmental Affairs, told supporters that he was proud to have the endorsement.
“We are lucky to have a man like Chuck Schumer representing us in the United States Senate,” Goldfeder said. “I’ve learned a great deal from Senator Schumer, like to never give up and to keep fighting for what you believe in. And that’s exactly what I plan to do in the Assembly. I believe we can create the kinds of jobs that will get our economy out of this rut and I will fight to bring those jobs right here to Queens.”
