Anthony Beckford for State Assembly
Anthony's endorsement was approved by the GPBK Membership at our recent membership meeting, per GPBK's new endorsement process. Congrats Anthony on all your work so far, and we're looking forward to helping you get out your message! Anthony will appear on the ballot in November as the Green Party candidate.
"As a long time advocate and activist, I have always had great pleasure in fighting for the people. It is my duty and my honor. I have heard the cries and have seen the tears. My decision to run for NYS Assembly is for me to answer those cries and to help dry those tears. As a Disabled Marine Corps Veteran and a Single Father, I have overcome a lot and have inspired many to do so as well. As the son of Jamaican Immigrants, I have unconditional love for my community which is predominantly Caribbean.
"My community is Assembly District 42 in Brooklyn, which is made up of Flatbush, East Flatbush, Midwood and Ditmas Park. I have been on the frontlines fighting against police brutality, pipelines, fracking, corrupt landlords and developers, corrupt politicians, bigotry, racism and so much more. I am honored to have received the endorsement from the Green Party of Brooklyn and welcome any and all help and donations for my campaign to become a greater movement of the people. It is time for the people to elect a candidate that will not provide lip service, but will actually provide solutions."
Please reach out to Anthony (firstname.lastname@example.org) to help petitioning in his district!
