BROOKLYN, NEW YORK — Today, Antonio Reynoso released the following statement in response to the first-round of votes cast in the Brooklyn Borough President’s race:
“I am so honored by the trust the voters of Brooklyn have placed in me with the clear preponderance of first-round votes last night. For two years, we’ve built a broad and diverse coalition, and we grew our support by talking about the issues that matter to Brooklyn’s working families, from affordable housing to equitable schools to jobs to safety and police reform. As we wait for every vote to be counted, I am confident that our lead will grow, I will win, and then we begin the hard work of rebuilding a fairer, stronger Brooklyn for all of us.
I also want to thank my volunteers and supporters, and I want to thank my opponents for their hard work and commitment to our Borough. Losing is never easy, but there is much more that unites us than divides us, and I look forward to working with them all in the months and years ahead.”
