Eric Adams Gains Key Queens Endorsement from District Leader Richard David


New York, NY — Last week, Queens District Leader Richard David officially endorsed Eric Adams for mayor of New York City.

David was elected as a District Leader in Assembly District 31 in 2019.  He was part of rejuvenating the Sojourner Truth Democratic Club as well as a member of Community Board 9 for over ten years. Most recently, he worked as a government relations specialist for a portfolio of leading nonprofits that provide life-changing cultural, educational and medical programs.

“New York City needs a leader with the lived experiences of everyday New Yorkers, including those of us in the most under-resourced communities of this great city, with a track record to deliver on their promises. This is why we must elect Eric Adams. I am confident that Eric will be a mayor who listens to us and can deliver for Guyanese and Trinidadian Americans, immigrant families, and all of us who call Assembly District 31 and New York City our home,” said David.

Born in Guyana, David moved to New York City as a child.  He lives in South Ozone Park and has remained active helping our communities recover from Covid-19 by fighting for testing and vaccine sites, food pantries and support for small homeowners and tenants.
