Queens Sen. Jessica Ramos on Monday endorsed Tiffany Cabán in the borough’s race for district attorney.

“I am endorsing Tiffany Cabán for Queens District Attorney because she will bring the transformative change our criminal justice system needs to deliver real justice to our communities,” Ramos said. “Tiffany’s experience as a public defender has given her a first hand look into the ways the courts have failed, and she knows the work that must be done for the most vulnerable of our neighbors.”

Cabán, a public defender, is running in a Democratic primary to succeed incumbent Richard Brown. She faces Borough President Melinda Katz, Judge Greg Lasak and Councilman Rory Lancman.

“I am honored to receive an endorsement from State Senator Jessica Ramos,” Cabán said.

“An ever-present force in her community, she consistently centers the voices of the most vulnerable in her policymaking. In doing so, Senator Ramos has taken bold steps to decriminalize sex work, defend her immigrant constituents, and gain protections for day laborers and farmworkers. A staunch advocate for community-centered solutions to criminal justice issues, Senator Ramos knows that in order to create safe communities, we must treat violence as a public health issue. I look forward to working with Senator Ramos to ensure the safety and stability of every Queens resident.”
