MOYA OUTRAISES ENTIRE FIELD: The NYC Campaign Finance Board awarded Council Member Francisco Moya’s campaign for re-election in District 21 public matching funds, after his campaign received overwhelming support and contributions from small-dollar donors across Central Queens and New York City. Moya has outraised the entire field of candidates, and is proud to have the voices of his grassroots supporters amplified by matching funds. The campaign has raised over $20,000 from donors within District 21 and New York City, and received close to $150,000 in matching funds from the CFB.

Councilman Moya said: “I want to thank every single person in my district and across New York City who donated to our campaign. I am proud to receive public funds to match the contributions of small-dollar donors. Central Queens is my home and I am so grateful to have the trust and support of my community in my campaign for re-election. I am even more energized to continue working for my neighbors and New Yorkers across the City.”

This widespread support for Moya in District 21 is a testament to his long-term record of showing up and delivering results for his community—from East Elmhurst and Jackson Heights to LeFrak City and Corona and for New Yorkers across the City. Moya’s re-election campaign has been endorsed by all of New York City’s major labor unions—Labor Strong 2021 coalition (32BJ, DC37, NYS Nurses Association, CWA District 1, and HTC), Carpenters, LiUNA, and UFT—as well as Latino Victory Fund, and the Gay and Lesbian Democratic Club of Queens.
