Assemblywoman Vanessa L. Gibson Receiving Widespread Support in Her Race for 16th District Bronx Council Seat

State Assemblywoman Vanessa L. Gibson (D-Bronx,77th AD) is receiving widespread support from a coalition of Democratic Party District Leaders and community residents in her race to win an open seat in New York City’s 16th Council District in the upcoming Sept. 10th Democratic Party primary. 

The strong endorsement of the two incumbent District Leaders in the 79th Assembly District, Cynthia Cox and Tee Lawton, assure that Gibson has a strong base of support in a community comprising 40 percent of the Council District including the Concourse Village complex of homes. The 79th Assembly District neighbors the community that Gibson has represented in the state Assembly for the past four years and is considered a key battleground in next week’s Democratic primary for the 16th Council District seat.

Vanessa Gibson is a dynamic and hard working legislator and I am sure she will be a valuable asset as our Council Member,” Lawton added.

“I am proud to work so closely with Cynthia Cox and Tee Lawton and I appreciate their support,” Assemblywoman Vanessa L. Gibson said. “As partners working together we are committed to making the 16th Council District a better place to live for every family in our community.”
