Former 86th Assembly District Leader Timothy Tapia Endorses Michael Blake for Congress (NY-15)

New York, NY – Former 86th Assembly District Leader Timothy Tapia has endorsed Michael Blake to be the next representative of New York’s 15th Congressional District in the Bronx.

A career public servant, Tapia currently serves as Deputy Director of Intergovernmental Affairs at the Office of the New York State Attorney General.

“I’m happy to throw my full support behind Assemblyman Michael Blake for New York’s 15th Congressional District,” Tapia said. “I have personally witnessed Michael fight for every community, and recently, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I haven’t seen any of the other candidates doing anything for the West Bronx. Instead of running away from the problem, Blake has run towards the crisis to help some of our less-fortunate residents who live in the Bronx. I need a fighter as my Congressman, and I’m proud to stand with Assemblyman Michael Blake.”


I am honored to have Timothy Tapia’s endorsement. He has spent his entire working life in the public sector, and he knows what it takes to get the job done for the communities we call home. I look forward to working with him in the coming weeks and months to make our neighborhoods more resilient so that we can meet the challenges that lie ahead.
