A Note from Micah

Our campaign was always about bringing a fresh perspective to city politics and righting inequities that have plagued our communities for decades. Running for office to help elevate voices and champion change has and continues to be the next logical step in my career as a public servant. However, it is with a heavy heart I am announcing my termination of my candidacy for New York City Council for District 26.

While it is difficult to accept, it is clear to me my campaign does not have the means to move forward successfully. My service is to continue to advocate for the residents of western Queens and lift up the voices of those who cannot be heard. I believe in the capacity we all possess to create a better New York City for all. I am grateful for everyone who has supported me through this endeavor and the volunteers who took time to advocate with me and to navigate this process together. We have so many talented candidates in the field. I look forward to working with the person who ends up representing our district to ensure all of our interests are represented and our needs are met.

This is my first time running for office, but it will not be my last. I will continue my commitment to fight to an end to systemic racism which affects our youngest learners and will be a champion for justice and dignity for all.
