City councilwoman Margaret Chin officially kicked off her re-election campaign Sunday, saying she had helped take her lower Manhattan district "to new heights with the input, help and support of our residents."

Chin, who was flanked by such supporters as State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and U.S. Rep. Nydia Velazquez, has represented the First Council District since 2010. She will face off in the Sept. 10 Democratic primary against Jenifer Rajkumar, a Democratic district leader and attorney.
