The Working Families Party recently endorsed Marvin Holland for the City Council’s 9th District seat. The WFP labels Holland a “voice for Harlem” in uncertain times and a new face in city government.
The special election for the 9th District City Council seat, once occupied by Inez Dickens, takes place Feb. 14.
“With his extensive experience in organized labor and longstanding dedication to the Harlem community, Marvin Holland has proven time and again that he knows how to fight for working people,” said WFP New York State Director Bill Lipton in a statement. “During these uncertain times, when families fear the loss of vital government services in the Trump era, we know that Marvin will be a voice for working families in the City Council.”
