NYCLASS Statement of Support for Melissa Mark-Viverito as Council Speaker

MelissaMarkViverito8Manhattan.pngWe are thrilled that the Brooklyn delegation, led by Chairman Frank Seddio, is joining the progressive bloc in supporting Melissa Mark-Viverito as New York City's next Council Speaker. Ms. Mark-Viverito has fought for animal rights throughout her time on the Council and was a prime sponsor of legislation that would phase out horse-drawn carriages in New York City, replacing them with vintage electric cars. She is a true animal hero, and we look forward to working with Speaker Mark-Viverito and Mayor de Blasio as we move toward a humane and vibrant future for all New Yorkers -- two-legged and four-legged alike.
