UPCOMING ELECTION:  New York City Special Election for Public Advocate

When: Tuesday, February 26, 2019

Where: Citywide

What:  Public Advocate

UDC has endorsed Assemblywoman Latrice Walker to become the next Public Advocate. Throughout her time as a public servant, Latrice has always remained dedicated to serving and championing issues New Yorkers care about. From serving as Counsel to Congresswoman Yvette D. Clarke, to leading the charge for criminal justice reform and fixing NYCHA public housing as Assemblywoman of the 55th district, Latrice has proven time and time again she is ready and qualified for the job.

Latrice is a leader who will fight for what the people of New York City truly need: tangible solutions to some of our city’s biggest problems. Her plan is to strengthen the role of the NYC Public Advocate by adding the power to subpoena, investigate, and sue. With her experience as lawyer and public servant, Latrice will lead the charge on:
  • Criminal justice reform & closing Rikers Island.
  • Making sure our MTA is reliable, accessible and affordable to all.
  • Fixing NYCHA & ensuring adequate public housing.
  • Quality education for our children.
