Taking a look at the fundraising numbers posted by the candidates in District 20, which includes Flushing and other portions of northeast Queens, City Council candidate Sandra Ung is leading the way with $87,00 and an additional $142,600 in matching funds.
According to Ung’s campaign, she raised over $45,000 since the last filing. Her total, including matching funds, is nearly $230,000, placing her campaign among the top fundraisers in Queens and the second-highest in Queens.
Ung, who most recently worked for Congresswoman Grace Meng, drew from 500 honors across the city.
“I am honored to have received the support of so many members of our community,” she said. “These funds are going to allow me to spend more time listening and speaking with voters to hear about their issues and priorities.”
She was recently endorsed by the Uniformed Sanitationmen’s Association, Local 831 IBT, and also has the support of 21 in ’21.
