A long-time community activist, Blake has been deeply committed to building a better New York for over 30 years.
Blake Morris is a real Democrat, not a Republican with a “D” next to his name, like Sen. Felder, the incumbent who was first elected in 2012.
In the Trump era, it has never been more important to have a progressive state legislature to protect our values. New Yorkers can count on Blake Morris to give us that from day one and the Democratic state Senate we deserve.
In the state Senate, Blake Morris will fight to pass legislation Senator Felder and the Republicans continue to block:
✓ Stronger Rent Laws for Tenants
✓ Supporting the DREAM ACT
✓ Real Campaign Finance Reform
✓ Single-Payer Health Care
✓ Common Sense Gun Control
