Jerry Iannece, who is vying for the 25th Assembly District seat, received a unanimous endorsement by the Queens County Democratic Committee today.
“I am proud to accept the endorsement of the Queens County Democratic Party and excited to continue working hard to protect Queens taxpayers,” Iannece said. “Public service should be about standing up for middle class families to make sure that we expand opportunities for all our citizens. My experience first as a New York City prosecutor and now as chair of Community Board 11 has allowed me to focus on the real world issues our citizens face each and every day.”
Iannece has been a member of Community Board 11 for over 15 years and has served as chair since 2002.
“Whether it was advocating for tax relief for overburdened property owners or making sure our kids have access to a great education, I have worked hard to provide strong leadership for Queens families,” the Bayside resident said. “I look forward to continuing this fight in the weeks and months ahead.”
Iannece announced his intentions to seek election over a month ago. The hopeful has since been endorsed by the Uniformed Fire Officers Association.
The 25th Assembly District seat is currently held by Assemblymember Rory Lancman, who is making a run for Congress.
According to published reports, candidate Nily Rozic will be contending against Iannece during the Democratic primary. No other candidates have officially surfaced yet.
