SUNNYSIDE POST: Working families party rejects Queens Chapter pick in western queens council race
Julie Won, who is running to represent the 26th Council District, got the support of the Queens chapter of the Working Families Party (WFP). However, the WFP’s Regional Advisory Council landed on a different candidate than the chapter’s recommendation.
Won said the party’s decision was “bitterly disappointing.”
“I was honored to have the overwhelming support of the WFP’s Queens chapter and it stings to see their vote overturned by the party’s regional affiliates,” she said in a statement shared with the Queens Post and posted to Twitter. “It is painfully clear that the political machine is alive and well.”
