In a moment, we’re going to ask you to make a contribution to Carlos’ campaign, but first, we want to share what it means to have Carlos running for Mayor and explain why it’s so important you do.
Carlos is New York City’s first Mexican-American elected official and Brooklyn’s first openly gay legislator. He’s a trailblazer, passionate leader and has the type of experience that this city needs to lead us toward a brighter future for all of our communities.
If elected, Carlos would be the first openly gay mayor, the first non-white mayor in nearly 30 years, and the first Latino mayor in at least a century.
That’s a lot of firsts! Which leads us to the most important point: Carlos is running to end the status quo that has allowed the wealthy and powerful to be prioritized over our communities. He’s running so our communities, especially the most marginalized among us, are put first.
In light of all that is happening in the world, around the country, and in New York right now, we need the leadership Carlos brings to usher in a new, brighter era for New Yorkers. If you’re ready to elect Carlos as Mayor of New York City, chip in $10, or whatever is meaningful to you.
