ENDORSEMENTS

"I'm excited to endorse John Sanchez to represent District 15 in the New York City Council. John is committed to serving Bronxites and ensuring we have access to affordable housing, economic growth and adequate healthcare. With me in Albany and John in City Council, I know the people in our overlapping districts will have advocates in both levels of government that will work hard to bring resources to the Bronx."

Chantel Jackson, New York State Assembly Member District 79

“I am proud to endorse John Sanchez for New York City Council in the 15th District. For the past four years, John has served as District Manager for Community Board 6 where he has earned a reputation for going above and beyond for the community. He helped secure funding for local businesses, provided a free and safe space for our youth to play sports, and offered community workshops, among many other crucial programs. I am supporting John because I know that he will be ready on day one to represent the people of the 15th District as their next Councilmember.”

Rafael Salamanca Jr., New York City Council Member District 17

"Sanchez, who currently serves as District Manager of Bronx Community Board 6, has made safer streets a centerpiece of his campaign. He's been vocal about the need to reduce automobile use, and would accomplish that in part by supporting new busways on Fordham Road and 3rd Avenue, and protected bike lanes throughout the 15th District. He will advocate for universally daylighting street corners to increase safety, and plans to introduce legislation to create parking benefit districts, which would return extended parking-meter revenue to communities to fund streetscape improvements."

"City Council Members have the opportunity to enact bold policies that combat climate change, reduce waste and protect our environment. We are confident that these candidates are committed to prioritizing clean air and water, renewable energy, and resilient communities. That’s why we are proud to endorse them and urge voters to join us in casting their ballot for the environment."

New York League of Conservation Voters

"John has consistently fought for housing in high-opportunity neighborhoods in his time as Community Board 6 District Manager in the Bronx, including penning an op-ed in support of the SoHo/NoHo rezoning long before other politicians supported it, and coordinating votes on his Community Board in favor of ending apartment bans and enabling and expanding ADUs and basement apartments in New York City."

"We need leaders that go above and beyond their job description. From sponsoring open gyms for teens to establishing a paid internship program to launching monthly civics and financial literacy workshops, John has consistently shown that he is ready to lead, and I am excited to see him bring that energy to the City Council to serve the 15th District in The Bronx."
