Ithaca, NY — Ducson Nguyen, Democratic candidate for Common Council alderperson for Ithaca’s 2nd Ward, has received the endorsement of Tompkins County Legislator Nathan Shinagawa. In 2012 Shinagawa was the Democratic nominee for New York’s 23rd Congressional District in one of the closest races in the country.
“Contrary to popular belief, I’ve always believed that our representatives at the local level have it harder than our Senators and members of Congress,” said Shinagawa. “Your decisions change the look and feel of the city, affect public safety, and determine whether the community thrives or stagnates. With so much on the line, it’s crucial that we elect representatives who love this city.”
“Duc loves Ithaca,” he continued. “I’m happy to endorse Ducson Nguyen because I believe he’ll work hard to do what’s right for the people of Ithaca.”
The endorsement is one of many — Ducson Nguyen has received voices of confidence from several area representatives in recent months.
