Mark Earns Endorsement of Teachers in UFT Announcement
On November 5th the voters of New York City delivered a powerful message that has been heard across the nation and world: progressive politics is winning politics.
I could not be prouder to be entering the City Council at a time when true progressives like Bill de Blasio, Letitia James, and Scott Stringer will be leading our city. I look forward to working with each of them to advance our shared goals.
I also want to extend my thanks to the more than 18,000 voters in District 7 that put their faith in me. I promise to do everything I can to fight on behalf of our district and our city over the next four years.
There will be many challenges on the road ahead, and going forward I will rely on your support more than ever. It is critical that activists like you continue pushing to advance the progressive agenda. We’re going to need to work as a team for tenants, students, seniors and low-wage workers to ensure that everyone in our city has an equal chance to make it.
Thank you for all you did to make our victory possible. Now let’s get to work!
Mark Levine New York City Councilmember-Elect, District 7
I am enormously grateful to you and countless others who gave so much of yourselves in support of my City Council campaign over the past 9 months. Every one of you owns a piece of the victory we achieved on Tuesday night.
During this campaign I had the privilege of getting to know thousands of voters in every corner of this wonderfully diverse district. What I saw inspired me beyond measure. Everywhere regular people stood up to say they cared about the future of local government. And they understood that to tackle the enormous challenges we face--in housing, education, employment--we need to build coalitions as diverse as this district and city.
This energy fueled our campaign from start to finish. So many of you knocked on doors, worked the phones, made financial contributions and tapped the power of online social networks. Your efforts inspired more than 7,000 of our neighbors to cast their vote in favor of our inclusive, progressive vision for New York City.
I couldn’t be more excited to partner with you in the months and years ahead as we work to make our vision a reality. Thank you again for all you have done to make this possible.
Our diverse coalition to bring progressive change to City Hall has strongly resonated with District 7 voters. I am deeply honored that they have chosen me to represent them in the City Council. Everyone involved in this campaign should be extremely proud of their hard work.
Working together with you has been extremely rewarding -- We’ve shared enthusiasm for improving our communities, and share a vision to build a better New York.
In the coming months, and years, these conversations will continue. And I look forward to serving you and our neighbors on the City Council.
There are only two days left until voters are going to hit the polls in the largest New York City election year in recent memory. With so many candidates, we want to make sure voters know about my husband, Mark Levine, and why he’s running for City Council.
The only way we can do this is if we have people out there with Mark: Please join our family as we enter the final push to make this campaign successful.

Thank you, and I hope to work with you in the coming days,
