Daniel Vila (l) and Hank Bardel (r) getting ready to file their petitions as candidates for US Congress with the NYC Board of Elections on April 14th. 

Daniel Vila will be on the ballot in November as the Green Party candidate for US Congress for District 13 in NY, covering Harlem and upper Manhattan, and parts of the West Bronx. His designating petition, along with that of District 11 candidate, Hank Bardel, was filed with the NYC Board of Elections on April 14th.

The petition was not challenged as of the April 18th deadline and, without a primary contender, Daniel’s name  will appear on the Election Day ballot.

Daniel, a long time community and union activist, will pick up his campaign where he left off in 2014, after receiving 12% of the vote in his challenge to Representative Charles Rangel, who will be retiring from Congress this year.
