    The Villager: "A strong voice for affordable housing and tenant's rights, Mendez justly deserves re-election under any scenario."

    The Town & Village: Rosie "has proven to be a fighter for her constituents, particularly those who are the most vulnerable...Mendez has made life better for residents of NYCHA housing whenever and wherever is reassuring to know Mendez is there to remind the agency of what it needs to be doing...It's fair to say Mendez has made a name for herself as an elected official who won't decide problems are too small to demand her attention."

    • New York Amsterdam News: Rosie "is a fighter for equal justice, equal rights and fair wages, and has worked tirelessly to help improve access to health care. For this and many other reasons, we endorse Mendez for City Council."

    • Gay City News: "A strong voice for affordable housing and tenants' rights, Mendez justly deserves reelection under any scenario. She would be part of a trio of out LGBT veteran next year's Council. Mendez was among the most outspoken critic of a pattern of false NYPD arrests of gay men in Manhattan adult video stores several years ago."
