The Benjamin Franklin Reform Democratic Club has endorsed Eric Dinowitz for New York City Council, District 11 in the special election scheduled for March 23, 2021.
Eric Dinowitz is a husband, father, public-school special education teacher, and community activist. Eric found value in helping people and his community at a young age and made a career out of it. As a public-school special education teacher at JFK and Walton Campuses, UFT Chapter Leader, and Democratic District Leader, Eric has spent his entire career fighting to make our community and the lives of people in it better.
In the city council, Eric will make your voice heard to have an equitable recovery from the COVID crisis. He will advocate for policies that safely get our kids back to school and focus on our children and community, not high-stakes test scores; stand with unions, advocate for policies that uplift our small businesses, and support our working families; protect our seniors with policies that allow them to age in place and stay independent; ensure that disabled New Yorkers have equal access to our city.
Whether it be in the classroom, securing accessible transit, speaking out when the MTA wanted to cut bus service, or standing up for seniors, Eric has been there for us, and will make our voices heard in City Hall.
