The DREAM TEAM
I can’t do this alone. Our coalition of support is growing everyday.
“I am proud to endorse Catalina Cruz because she has the experience and the vision to be a leader for our community in Albany. Catalina is a true fighter. The grassroots coalition she is building reminds me of my own insurgent campaign in 2009. We both understand that with people power, anything is possible. I am excited to support Catalina's historic candidacy and I look forward to working with her to deliver on the changes our community deserves.”

I’m proud to endorse Catalina and fully support her historic campaign.” - Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-IL).
