Queens daily eagle: Queens 21 in ‘21 endorsements unveiled, sparking praise and pushback
Updated: Nov 11, 2020
The endorsements were selected after a vote by dues-paying members of 21 in ‘21, following an interview with the board of directors. The organization has not released its vote totals, prompting criticism about a lack of transparency.
The endorsement process rankled many candidates and observers, who said it lacked transparency and relied on dues-paying members, including individuals who could join for a single month to vote, then cancel their membership.
“I [100%] support womxn supporting womxn, but I do not support ponzi schemes for non-transparent, non-democratic endorsement processes,” tweeted District 26 candidate Julie Won. “For the benefit of all candidates to learn RCV please release vote totals for each district.”
