Though more than a month away, Democratic New York City Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley on Monday received the endorsement of Gov. Andrew Cuomo in her upcoming September primary.

She faces Bob Holden for the Democratic line.

“I’m truly honored to have the Governor’s endorsement,” said Crowley, a Queens Democrat.

“Governor Andrew Cuomo has demonstrated time and again that he has not forgotten his Queens roots or the needs of our community. The proof of this is all around us, from free college tuition for our middle class families and increased education funding for our schools, to major new infrastructure projects like the Kosciuszko Bridge and LaGuardia Airport. The Governor has consistently proven his commitment to our community, and I intend to do the same with another term in the City Council.”

In his statement, Cuomo cited Crowley’s push to prevent firehouses from closing and push for education funding.

“For over a decade, Elizabeth Crowley has fought for Queens families,” he said.

“She has fought and secured education funding so that public school children are guaranteed a better, brighter future. She has prevented the closure of local firehouses and stood up for New York’s bravest in their times of need. Most of all, Elizabeth has served as mentor and inspiration to countless women and aspiring officeholders across the city through her work to ensure local government reflects all the voices of the community. I know that with four more years Elizabeth Crowley will continue to deliver for the 30th District, and I’m proud to endorse her candidacy.”
