Speaker Heastie Statement on City Council Speaker Election

On behalf of the New York State Assembly Majority, I would like to congratulate Corey Johnson on his election to New York City Council Speaker. We have long shared his passion for progressive policies that bring New Yorkers more affordable housing, a fairer criminal justice system and a reliable transit system.

Together, we are confident we can continue to address some of the city's greatest challenges. As we begin the legislative session, we look forward to working with him to help advance progressive policies that move the City of New York ever upward.
