State Senator Kevin Parker has officially launched his campaign for re-election with a slick thirty-second campaign video and a slew of major endorsements from organized labor and key elected officials.

Parker has represented parts of Flatbush, Midwood, Kensington and the surrounding neighborhoods for nearly 20 years, and is one of the most prolific legislators in the New York State Senate.

Recent legislation authored or supported by Senator Parker includes the COVID-19 rent and utility moratoriums, a comprehensive gun violence package signed into law by Governor Kathy Hochul, and the most progressive green energy legislation in the country in the Build Public Renewables Act.

The newly launched website – www.KevinParker4Senate.com – features Senator Parker’s signature legislation and policy platforms, different ways to engage with the campaign, recent news and more.

The campaign has already announced the support of the PEF, the largest public employees union in New York. Reached by email, Parker’s communication director Andrew Holt sent the following statement regarding the campaign’s progress.

“The outpouring of support has been exciting, but expected. Coming off the Senator’s decisive win for District Leader, as well as Governor Hochul signing Senator Parker’s signature gun control and environmental legislation into law, we are now excited to kick the campaign for re-election to the State Senate into high gear. Over the next several weeks our campaign will be rolling out an unprecedented level of support from organized labor, clergy, community groups and advocates. We are confident of a win heading into August 23rd, but we are taking nothing for granted.”

While the Assembly and Statewide office primaries were held in June, the primary date for the State Senate and Congressional races was moved to August 23rd. For more information on how and where to vote, you may visit www.vote.nyc.
