Daneek Miller, state senators James Sanders Jr., Leroy Comrie and state assembly members Alicia Hyndman and Clyde Vanel threw their support for the mayor’s re-election bid during Sunday services at two churches. “I know Bill de Blasio has been very responsive to the needs of Southeast Queens and, therefore, I believe that Bill de Blasio should be re-elected as mayor of the city of New York,” Comrie said.
