The final few endorsements have been trickling in for candidates in some election races in northeast Queens.

State Senator Tony Avella rolled out several boosts to his re-election campaign in the 11th District race’s final stretch, including support from the city’s Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, the Police Benevolent Association of the New York State Troopers, the Captain’s Endowment Association, Lieutenant’s Benevolent Association, Detective’s Endowment Association, New Yorkers Stand Against Insurance Fraud, the United Transportation Union and New Yorkers Against Gun Violence.

Democratic Assembly candidate Nily Rozic, in the 25th District, recently got the major backing of U.S. Senator Charles Schumer and scored other endorsements from NARAL Pro-Choice New York and Planned Parenthood NYC Action Fund.

City Councilmember Dan Halloran also got a leg up from the New York State Fraternal Order of Police in his bid for the 6th District Congressional seat.

There is less than two weeks left before voters hit the booths on November 6 for Election Day.
