Statement from the Bronx Democratic Party and Chair Jamaal T. Bailey Congratulating Adrienne Adams on Becoming New York City Council Speaker:
“The Bronx Democratic Party is proud to congratulate Councilmember Adrienne Adams on becoming Speaker of the New York City Council.
“Nearly two years into an unprecedented crisis that has battered our borough, the Bronx is still fighting on the frontlines of our city’s recovery. After much discussion, our members have made their voices heard — it is clear that our leadership must reflect the diversity and the needs of our communities.
“The incoming City Council will be the most diverse and first women-led Council in city history, and as a delegation made up of a majority of women of color, we have full confidence in her vision and leadership in this critical moment.
“We are looking forward to working alongside Councilmember Adams and the powerful coalition she’s built to lead our city forward.”
