New York, NY – Today, Kathryn Garcia, Democratic Candidate for Mayor of New York City released the following statement: “It takes tremendous courage for anyone to come forward. I support Jean Kim, I believe Jean Kim, and I commend her bravery for speaking truth to power. We know that the path for survivors who come forward is often fraught with further pain and relentless scrutiny, and we owe it to survivors to take these accusations seriously. “Scott Stringer should stand by his own policy of zero tolerance for sexual harassment and drop out of the mayoral race. New Yorkers need and deserve a mayor they can trust, who demonstrates steady, competent, and capable leadership. It is clear that Scott Stringer is not that person and that we need more women in leadership and elected office.”
