Schumer Endorses Gounardes

U.S. Senator Charles Schumer, a Sheepshead Bay native, has endorsed Democrat Andrew Gounardes for State Senate in the 22nd District, calling Gounardes a "fighter for Brooklyn's middle class."

Schumer said he's rarely seen a candidate who works as hard as Gounardes.

Middle-class families across the district deserve a State Senator who works as hard as they do, Schumer said -- someone who will fight for good jobs and fair wages.

Most of all, said New York's senior U.S. Senator, they deserve someone capable of representing a newer, more dynamic Brooklyn.

Andrew Gounardes is that person, Schumer said.

In accepting the endorsement, Gounardes, former congressional aide to Schumer’s colleague, U.S. Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey, praised Schumer's devotion to middle-class values and an economy where everyone pays their fair share and can achieve the dignity that comes with a decent job and fair pay.

U.S. Representative Jerrold Nadler has also endorsed Gounardes.
