Bronx elected officials back Bill Thompson for mayor
Bill Thompson picked up a pair of endorsements from some familiar faces Thursday.
U.S. Rep. Jose Serrano and his son, state Sen. Jose M. Serrano, said they backed the former comptroller and mayoral candidate for the second election in a row.
The Bronx elected officials said Thompson, who was defeated by Mayor Michael Bloomberg in 2009, was the only candidate that had the best interests of all New Yorkers.
"Every time I have a conversation with Billy, don't talk about just one issue," the elder Serrano said at a news conference outside City Hall.
Thompson thanked the Serranos for their support and promised to work for every New Yorkers.
"We're moving this campaign forward, in every community and every borough," he said.
