Queens Borough President Melinda Katz today added her name to the growing list of supporters backing Stacey Pheffer Amato for State Assembly. Stacey is running in the soon-to-be-vacant 23rd Assembly District being vacated by Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder.
“I have known Stacey for many years. She gets Queens and she understands that the Rockaways need strong leaders fighting for us in Albany,” said Katz. “Stacey’s track record of delivering for this community and standing up for parents, seniors and all families is simply unparalleled.
“More than anything, Stacey cares about her community,” Katz continued. “She’s been in the trenches helping Rockaway recover from Superstorm Sandy; she’s a terrific school leader as President of Scholars’ Academy Parent Association; and she’s been active with the Rockaway Beach Civic Association for years. Stacey learned the importance of public service from her mother Audrey, and she’s exactly the kind of compassionate, tough leader who gets things done.”
“I want to thank Borough President Katz for her endorsement and for all that she’s done for our Borough,” said Pheffer Amato. “As a homeowner and taxpayer, a mother and a small business owner I am running to build on the great tradition of service set by BP Katz, Assemblymember Goldfeder, and of course my mother Audrey Pheffer.”
Stacey Pheffer Amato is a lifelong resident of the Rockaways and a strong believer in public service. She currently serves as President of the Scholars’ Academy Parent Association, a Committee Member of the Rockaway West NY Rising Community Reconstruction Program, and as Democratic District Leader for the 23rd Assembly District. She and her husband live with their two kids in Rockaway Beach.\
