MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- The Mount Vernon Democratic City Committee overwhelmingly endorsed Mayor Ernie Davis, on May 21, for re-election.
“We have accomplished much but there is much more to do,"Davis said. "I am grateful to the Mount Vernon Democratic City Committee for their service and for their endorsement in my re-election campaign. I look forward to continuing our work together to create a better Mount Vernon for every one of us.”
“Mayor Davis continues to give Mount Vernon residents results they can see," said Westchester Democratic County Chair Reginald Lafayette. "Through his focus on new housing and business initiatives, he has pursued economic development opportunities, which are good for the City of Mount Vernon. The Mount Vernon Democratic City Committee looks forward to enthusiastically supporting these candidates throughout the campaign season.”
Davis has a strong record of fighting for Mount Vernon and every one of its residents, the committee said. He has worked to create jobs, reduce crime and make Mount Vernon safer, the committee said.
He also created major new development projects and summer jobs for local youths to stimulate the local economy and provided hot meals for seniors, the committee said.
Davis announced he would seek re-election earlier this month in front of Mount Vernon City Hall.
Teamsters Local 456 also endorsed Davis earlier this month.
