Greenfield, an experienced attorney and acclaimed community advocate, is running in the 44th Council District to replace Councilman Simcha Felder. Senator Lieberman, an influential member of the US Senate and a staunch supporter of Israel, has been a Presidential and a Vice Presidential Candidate, as well as a US Senator from the State of Connecticut since 1988. Greenfield worked as Deputy Finance Director for Senator Lieberman’s 2004 Presidential campaign.”I have known David Greenfield for over ten years and have seen him grow from a talented political staffer to an effective community advocate. David’s independence and persistence is what makes him such an effective advocate for his community,” said Senator Lieberman.

“Senator Lieberman is an independent leader in the US Senate. He ignores party politics and what’s politically expedient, and fights for what’s best for his constituents,” said Greenfield. “I will strive to be the kind of independent leader in City Hall that Senator Lieberman has been in Washington DC.”

“David Greenfield represents the finest of the next generation of political leaders. His grasp of public policy and understanding of real-world politics is remarkable. In short, David Greenfield knows how to get things done,” added Lieberman.

In addition to the support of Senator Lieberman, Greenfield has also received the endorsements of a number of other prominent elected officials, including Mayor Michael Bloomberg, former Mayor Ed Koch, New York State Senators Carl Kruger and Martin Golden, and Councilmen Vincent Gentile, Michael Nelson, Domenic Recchia, and Lewis Fidler. Greenfield has also received widespread support from prominent members of every ethnic community in the diverse 44th Council District, including the Catholic, Ashkenaz, Sephardic, and chassidishe communities.
