Candidates for citywide office are entering the final hours before Election Day, and prominent state officials are lending them a hand.
On Saturday afternoon, Attorney General Letitia James was at Councilman Justin Brannan’s campaign headquarters speaking to his supporters and encouraging them to do everything possible to re-elect him.
James called Brannan a “no nonsense politician” who gets things done.
Brannan called Bay Ridge his home and said it was an honor to serve his community over the last four years.

"What we need are public servants who represent and understand the importance of public service. Who recognized that now is the time as we recover from COVID-19, we need individuals who can bring us all together to improve our economy, to get people back to work to open up our schools that's what we need and government,” says James.
James did not speak to her own candidacy for governor, but her staff did say she will continue to attend other get out the vote efforts across the city leading up to Tuesday’s election.
