• Marjorie Velazquez

    Democrat for District 13

  • Marjorie Velazquez Stands With Working People 

    We need to elect tenacious candidates to fight for working people in the primary elections on June 27. As many of us are struggling to cope with the cost-of-living crisis, we need to know that our leaders will prioritize the issues that matter most to us: affordable housing and safer streets foremost among them. We need politicians who will have our backs. We need true Democrats to be our voice in City Hall.


    In the Bronx, that means supporting Marjorie Velazquez in the Democratic primary on June 27th.

  • Marjorie Velazquez

    Democrat for City Council

    District 13

    Council Member Marjorie Velazquez is a proven champion for the Bronx and has served as the first woman of color and first Latina to represent District 13 on the City Council. In 2012, Marjorie suffered life-changing injuries from a workplace accident and a subsequent serious car crash that left her temporarily disabled. During this time, Marjorie witnessed first-hand the dysfunction and excessive costs of the healthcare system, and struggled to recover. Always a fighter, she found a path to recovery through giving back to her community more. During her recovery, Marjorie’s life went from one of painful struggle to one of public service.



  • Marjorie Velazquez has delivered on affordable housing.

    Marjorie is a dedicated advocate for tenants. She provided housing for seniors and veterans, supported legislation to expand rental assistance, and developed new affordable housing units in District 13.

    Marjorie Velazquez has made our streets safer.

    Marjorie is a dedicated advocate for our safety. She won funding for new security cameras in the district, advocated for and secured dozens of police officers in the district, and supported legislation cracking down on catalytic converter theft.

    Marjorie Velazquez is the Only Democrat Who Can Win

    Marjorie Velazquez’s success in promoting affordable housing has unsurprisingly got Republicans up in arms. Velazquez’s primary opponent in the June 27th election is a longtime Republican who only changed parties in 2021. She has made it clear that she switched parties only to win an election and has described her views as “very comparable” to the Republican Party’s platform. The only true Democratic candidate who can advocate for our needs is Marjorie Velazquez.
