Democratic congressional candidate David Buchwald over the weekend received the endorsements of 41 local-level officials in his bid to replace outgoing Rep. Nita Lowey in the House of Representatives.

Buchwald’s endorsements come amid an increasingly crowded field for the Democratic nomination in the suburban 17th congressional district. The nods came from officials in Westchester and Rockland counties, including mayors and twon supervisors.

“I fully support David Buchwald as he runs for Congress,” said Mount Kisco Deputy Mayor Jean Farber. “Throughout his years serving our community, he has fought for our values and stood for greater government transparency and accountability. When it comes to gun violence and climate change, we need leaders who will take action – that’s David.”

Buchwald, a member of the state Assembly, is facing Sen. David Carlucci, former NARAL Pro-Choice America Chairwoman Allison Fine, former Obama administration official Mondaire Jones, and just today Evelyn Farkas, a former Department of Defense official.

“I am proud to have the support of such an overwhelming group of respected leaders across the district as I run for Congress,” Buchwald said.

“I believe that working together is critical to making change happen, and I’ve worked hard throughout my career to build relationships across Westchester and Rockland. From climate change solutions to healthcare access to lowering our taxes by fighting to reinstate our SALT deductions, I am committed to delivering for our communities in Congress.”
