Amsterdam News Endorses Laurie Cumbo


New York Amsterdam News Endorsement

Laurie A. Cumbo is not the typical politician. For the last several years, she has been following her passion of the arts, founding the Museum of Contemporary African Diaspora Arts. As a cultural leader in Brooklyn, she has seen what it takes to fight to make arts a priority while at the same time seeing the needs of the community as an entrepreneur and community member. Cumbo has used the arts as a platform to help transform and support the community. Her background in tourism also gives her insight in how to bring more people to the diverse 35th Council District and to Brooklyn as a whole.

Other priorities for Cumbo include reforming education and ensuring that future New Yorkers are equipped to make this city, this country and their lives better. In a nutshell, Cumbo wants to help build a better Brooklyn and is a new generation of politician that is promoting economic development that benefits everyone. For these reasons and more, we endorse Cumbo for the 35th Council District.
