Cumbo Campaign Files over 10,000 signatures with Board of Elections to Appear on Ballot

Demonstrates Strength and Versatility of Grassroots Support

(BROOKLYN, NY) – 35th District City Council Candidate Laurie Cumbo shattered the requirement for petitions today by filing over 10,000 signatures with the Board of Elections, which is more than 20 times the requisite 450. The mounting support for Cumbo illustrated the robust nature of her grassroots backing and the strength of her ground operation. Cumbo is clearly the frontrunner in the petitioning process and has handwritten proof that her candidacy is thriving.

“I am humbled by the outpouring of support for my candidacy and thankful for those who signed my petition,” 35th District City Council Candidate Laurie Cumbo said. “The strength of this grassroots operation will be instrumental to the success of my campaign. The people of the 35th District have shown that they believe in my vision, and know that I will be a tireless advocate for all residents when I’m in the City Council. I am especially grateful for the efforts of Assemblyman Walter Mosley, President Marilyn Mosley and the members of PAPA, Chairman Frank Seddio and the Kings County Democrats, Renee Collymore and the Parliament Democratic Club, and Jesse Hamilton and the Rosa Parks Independent Democratic Club for their support in my petitioning process.”

“I am proud to be part of this broad coalition of support for Laurie,” Marilyn Mosley, President of Progressive Association for Political Action said. “It was an honor to help her get an incredible 10,000 signatures, which demonstrate her robust backing and substantive message. We are excited by her recent success and look forward to continuing the groundwork and mobilizing our members for the remainder of the campaign.”
