Clinton recently announced her intent to run in the 2016 presidential election, and Miner released the following statement regarding the matter:
“From canvassing for the Children’s Defense Fund, to creating the Children’s Health Insurance Program, Hillary Clinton has spent her life being a champion for children in need. As the mayor of a city where over 80 percent of our public school children live in poverty, we recognize the importance of Hillary’s experience. With her lifetime of helping those in need, she is the leader our country needs to help solve income inequality in our country.”
“Hillary Clinton served as the United States Senator from New York cipro from 2001 through 2009. In that time, she pushed for $20 billion for post-September 11 recovery, and healthcare for first responders.”
“Having represented the city of Syracuse as a United States Senator, she appreciates the challenges facing twenty first century cities. From poverty, to the need to upgrade and modernize our critical infrastructure, to the intrinsic threat we face from climate change, Hillary Clinton is a leader who can be the champion needed by our cities, and our country.”
In addition, Miner said she has been asked to co-chair a panel on infrastructure at a Denver meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative in June.
She also supported Clinton during her 2008 run for the Democratic nomination, which Clinton lost to current U.S. President Barack Obama.
