Filipino Americans are proud to endorse Gigi Li’s campaign for State Assembly. Gigi is a lifelong community advocate with deep roots in the district, and has already made history as the first Asian American to serve as chair of a community board in New York City. As part of her distinguished and long-term record of public service, Gigi strengthened her community’s engagement with civic and political life, delivered quality services to children and working families, especially those overcoming domestic violence, and helped businesses to recover and rebuild after Superstorm Sandy.
Asian Americans and indeed all communities in the 65th Assembly District need a leader who will work hard to keep our families together. Gigi Li knows our communities, shares our values, and has always been by our side, fighting for the same issues we face every day: passing the DREAM Act so that we can receive world-class college education, offering driver's licenses to immigrant New Yorkers to bring us out of the shadows, and making sure our most vulnerable members of our community have access to affordable housing, as well as the services and support our elderly family members need to thrive in Lower Manhattan.
Filipino Americans look forward to working with Gigi Li to bring her message and plan to the voters of Lower Manhattan, and to help send Gigi Li to the New York State Assembly. Not only is Gigi the smart choice, she is the right choice for our community.
