Jose Serrano Backs Liu for Comptroller

City Councilman John Liu, a candidate for city comptroller, announced today that he will be endorsed by Representative Jose Serrano of the Bronx.
Serrano, in a public statement, praised Liu for having “distinguished himself as a fiscal watchdog” during “his relatively short tenure in the City Council.” The statement goes on to say Serrano is confident that “John will continue to help provide opportunities for communities that are most in need.”
Serrano is Latino, which is significant only because Liu appears to be assembling a coalition composed of elected officials who belong to many different ethnic communities—an effective strategy to reach the maximum number of voters in a citywide race.
