May 24, 2021

New York, NY — The national advocacy group Food & Water Action is endorsing Mike Hollingsworth for New York City Council District 35, citing his track record of community leadership and commitment to a Green New Deal that works for all New Yorkers.

A lifelong Brooklynite, Mike Hollingsworth has a history of building change from the ground up, and winning big on bold issues facing his community. Hollingsworth has shown his commitment time and again to standing up to corporate influence in New York City politics, and is a staunch ally to the Green New Deal movement. A victim of environmental racism and fossil fuel polluter-driven childhood asthma, Hollingsworth is a critical ally in the fight against climate change in New York City.

With the endorsement, Food & Water Action Northeast Region Director Alex Beauchamp issued the following statement:

“We are proud to endorse Mike Hollingsworth’s candidacy for New York City Council. Brooklyn needs bold leadership to ensure a rapid and just transition off fossil fuels. We are confident in Mike Hollingsworth’s vision and political and grassroots organizing acumen to get the job done.”
