On the heels of yesterday’s news that expelled ex-Sen. Hiram Monserrate is circulating petitions to run against him, Queens Assembly hopeful Francisco Moya announced today he has landed the support of three Democratic elected officials expected to run for mayor in 2013.

NYC Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, former city Comptroller Bill Thompson and Manhattan BP Scott Stringer endorsed Moya, leading his campaign to declare that he has “Moya-mentum.”

Here’s what the trio had to say about their preferred candidate, as per the Moya campaign….


– De Blasio: “Francisco Moya is exactly the kind of honest, trustworthy representative the people of Queens need. Francisco will be a strong advocate for better schools, for better jobs and for a better Albany, and I am proud to give him my full support.”

– Stringer: “Francisco’s election is important for this community, and for the entire city and state. Not only is Francisco the best person for the job, but the people of New York deserve Assemblymembers they can be proud of, and that they can count on in Albany. For our neighborhoods, our schools, our senior centers, hospitals, parks and playgrounds, we need Francisco Moya fighting for us in Albany.”

– Thompson: “Francisco Moya will be an asset for this community, and I know he will work hard to bring good jobs and better schools to the hard working families of the 39th Assembly District. And when it comes to cleaning up Albany, the voters of this district will be able to play their part by supporting Francisco and sending a true reformer to represent them in state government.”
