The news just keeps getting better!
If you haven’t already heard, the New York Times just
announced its endorsement of me this morning! This is HUGE news!
The Times was especially impressed with my decades of work in the
community. Here’s what they had to say: "District 26, Queens
(Sunnyside, Woodside, Long Island City, Maspeth): Two candidates dominate
the contest to fill the seat being vacated by Eric Gioia. Deirdre Feerick’s
energetic community service is overshadowed by her excessive loyalty to the
Queens Democratic machine. James Van Bramer has done good work for the borough’s
enviable library system and has the independence and energy the Council needs.
We endorse Mr. Van Bramer."

I can’t overstate how important this endorsement is.
Besides being the paper of record in the United States, the Times’ editorial page has prioritized so many of the issues I have worked on for
decades, including campaign finance reform, public education, government
accountability and health care.
What a great way to start the Labor Day weekend! And just remember, our
office will be open and in full swing throughout the weekend and all the way
through the Democratic Primary on September 15th. If you have any extra time on
your hands this weekend, feel free to drop by and volunteer – we are located at
45-18 Skillman Avenue in Sunnyside (just two blocks from the #7 train) or give
us a call at (718) 313-0569.
Thank you for all of your support,
