Assemblyman Francisco Moya on Thursday added to the institutional support he’s received from elected officials for his New York City Council bid with an endorsement from Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

“Francisco Moya is a proven leader for Central Queens, while his opponent’s actions have disqualified him from public service, ” Cuomo said in a statement.

“From partnering with me to pass a $15 minimum wage, stronger rent laws and immigrant protections, as well as the Women’s Equality Act and critically important criminal justice reforms, Assemblyman Moya has worked to move New York forward. Contrasted with Hiram Monserrate’s shameful record of domestic violence and abusing the public trust, the choice could not be more clear. I’m proud to endorse Francisco Moya for City Council in the 21st District and I know he will continue to be a true champion of Democratic values.”

Moya faces former state Sen. Hiram Monserrate in a primary next month for the seat being vacated by Councilwoman Julissa Ferreras-Copeland.

Moya has been backed by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio as well as 1199/SEIU, a politically key labor union. He’s also been endorsed by Rep. Nydia Velázquez and Public Advocate Letitia James.

“Our state has led the nation by passing progressive legislation under Governor Cuomo,” Moya said.

“On issues facing everyday New Yorkers, New York has upped the ante. With Governor Cuomo’s leadership, New Yorkers will have one of the highest minimum wages, the most expansive paid family leave act, and a criminal justice system that will no longer treat teenagers like adults. Because of his leadership, we have seen capital projects like the one at LaGuardia Airport flourish. I am honored to receive Governor Cuomo’s endorsement, and look forward to expanding opportunity and fighting for the future of my neighbors.”
