“Ron Kim understands that we need to create jobs and protect our taxpayers in order to get our economy back on track,” said DiNapoli. “His experience in state government and knowledge of New York will allow him to hit the ground running to deliver results for middle class families in Queens. I am proud to support his campaign for the State Assembly and look forward to working with him in the years to come.”
The Democratic nominee Kim will face Philip Gim in the general election on November 6.
“I thank Comptroller DiNapoli for his leadership and support,” said Kim. “New York State is a better place to live and work because we have leaders like Comptroller DiNapoli working every day to responsibly manage our finances, improve our economy, and stand up for all New York’s taxpayers.”
