As his lawyer battles on his behalf in State Supreme Court, Election Part, Bronx Democrat Assembly hopeful, Mike Blake sent out an email announcing that he scored the backing of VOCAL-NY Action Fund and Community Voices Heard Power. 

In an email to supporters titled, “The Momentum Continues…,” Blake wrote

These endorsements mean so much to me because, coming from The Bronx, I’ve fought for the most underrepresented and underserved all of my life. Their endorsing quotes are very humbling and motivate us to continue pressing forward.

“The Bronx needs principled leaders in Albany that reflect progressive values and have an unwavering commitment to economic and racial justice,” said Bobby Tolbert, VOCAL-NY Action Fund Board Member and Bronx resident. “Michael Blake is a standout candidate with the energy and experience to bring much-needed change to the long underserved AD-79 in the Bronx. VOCAL-NY Action Fund proudly endorses his campaign and looks forward to working together to alleviate poverty and create more healthy and just communities in the Bronx and beyond.”

“Michael Blake brings forth the opportunity for voices of the community to be heard that have for so long been unheard,” said Joseph Mpa, CVH Power Board Member.“CVH Power is thrilled to support Michael Blake’s candidacy for the 79th District Assembly seat. He will bring about the type of meaningful change that The Bronx has been waiting for.”

The email ends with “Let’s change The Bronx and the world together! Let’s believe in a better Bronx” and a donation request.
I guess when The Bronx isn’t enough, why not the world, eh? (There goes that Canadian influence, again.)
