"Rebecca Harary, a Republican district leader, is an experienced small-business leader who will push for ethics and budget reforms. Democratic candidate Keith Powers is a registered lobbyist with powerhouse firm Constantinople & Vallone who would only add to the swamp of conflicts de Blasio has created at City Hall."
"...she would be an energetic, committed representative who would add a fresh perspective to the Council." - Citizens Union
"I am truly honored to be endorsed by Citizens Union. As the most important good government organization in NYC, I am incredibly grateful for their support and confidence in my campaign for New York City Council. Thank you so much!" - Rebecca Harary
"Your knowledge of local issues is unparallel(ed) and I am confident that you will service your constituents in the 4th Council District with fresh new ideas"

"I believe New Yorkers are good, hardworking people who want to slash the wasteful spending in City Hall, and want elected officials who care about their well-being and the future of New York City."
"Rebecca Harary is a proven leader who can get things done. From autism to women's issues, Rebecca has decades of proven experience in fighting to improve the lives of others. Mayor de Blasio has made the homelessness problem worse, allowed turnstile jumping, and urinating in public.
We need leaders like Rebecca Harary who will stand up to the far left progressive agenda which is destroying our quality of life. We need reasonable Republicans to bring real solutions facing all New Yorkers."
"Rebecca Harary is a proven leader who will stand up to Mayor de blasio and be the voice of reason at City Hall. If the residents of Manhattan's East Side want to send a message to the Mayor, they should vote for Rebecca Harary for City Council this November.
She's smart, hard-working and someone who understands that public service is a privilege, not an entitlement. I'm proud to support her in this race and urge my fellow New Yorkers to do the same."

Rebecca Harary was proud to received the endorsement of the Vincent F. Albano Republican Club by Club President Frank Scala.
Scala expressed confidence in Rebecca's experience and ability to lead New York City Council District 4.
The East Side Independence Club is proud to endorse Rebecca Harary for NYC Councilwoman in the 4th Council district. Rebecca has shown that she not only cares for those that need help, but also actively works to try and solve the problems that many people are living with. When she saw that autistic children were not getting the education they needed in the public school system, she opened a nonprofit school to address their special needs. While not resting on her laurels, she then opened another nonprofit high school to help kids with mild learning disabilities. Rebecca also started Propel Network, a nonprofit organization created to help put women back into the workforce by paying for each client's training and certification. Propel Network then helps to place each client into an appropriately paid job after they complete their training.
Rebecca is also an NYPD Police Officer Liaison.
Rebecca is the kind of elected official we all need. One who is not afraid to take chances to solve our city's problems, not only in our community but those that have plagued the entire city for decades! We need someone with her skill sets - that has not come up through the political system - to actually solve problems that our current politicians just seem to put Band-Aids on every few years.
Rebecca Harary will not only be an asset for the 4th City Council District, but the entire New York City. That is why the East Side Independence Club encourages everyone, no matter which party you belong to, to vote for Rebecca Harary.

"This City government overspends. overtaxes, over-regulates, over-prosecutes, over-incarcerates - and under-educates. That's what we get from the professional politician-lobbyists, who would capture the City Council to peddle influence and cut deals for well-connected, self-interested clients and special interest groups.
Rebecca Harary breaks that mold, realizing that more city taxes and regulations are not a solution, but that smarter and more effective City government can serve all New Yorkers more fully, more fairly - and also more affordably."
Chair, The Manhattan Libertarian Party
"You don't hear a lot of good things about Mayor de Blasio, because in truth, he's not doing a very good job. This election is a referendum on how Bill de Blasio is treating our community. That's why we need Rebecca Harary to run for City Council...to restore confidence and to restore common sense to our City of New York."
"Rebecca Harary is a mother of 6, grandmother of 8, with deep roots to the Sephardic Jewish community. Rebecca is the kind of Republican we can all get behind. She will be a much needed, common sense leader in City Hall."
The YU College Republicans formally endorse Rebecca Harary in the race for NYC City Council in District 4, representing Stern College for Women. She shares many of the same traditional Jewish family values and conservative principles as us at Yeshiva University.
With ties to Yeshivah of Flatbush Joel Braverman High School, Magen David Yeshivah High School, and Edmond J. Safra Synagogue of NYC, we cannot wait to help elect the FIRST Sephardic Jewish woman to city council in New York!
