Assembly Member Danny O’Donnell endorsed Cynthia Nixon, hosting her for a brief press conference and voter meet & greet at the 96th Street/Broadway subway station last Monday. O’Donnell has represented the Upper West Side since 2003 and endorsed Andrew Cuomo in 2014. He said that Cuomo’s failure to produce sufficient results in eight years in office, including on criminal justice reform and mass incarceration, have led him to support Nixon.
O’Donnell was the fourth member of the Assembly to endorse Nixon, joining Andrew Hevesi, Tom Abinanti and Harvey Epstein. She’s also been endorsed by four New York City Council members.
