At the endorsement meeting on June 1st C.O.D.A. (coalition for a
District alternative) announced the endorsement of Ken Diamondstone for the
New York State Senate (25thDistrict), the seat currently held by Martin
Connor. C.O.D.A. is a get-out-the-vote powerhouse on the Lower East Side and
is well known as a progressive Reform organization. “ I am honored to have
received the backing of C.O.D.A., their support gives early momentum to our
campaign”, said Ken Diamondstone.

Immediately following the C.O.D.A. endorsement, Diamondstone received the
strong backing of the Working Families Party with their endorsement. These
latest endorsements demonstrate the strength of Diamondstone’s campaign to
unseat the 28-year incumbent, and illustrates his appeal to progressive
voters throughout the District.
