New York State AFL-CIO Announces Endorsements in State Senate and Assembly Elections

Today, August 20, 2012, the 2.5 million member New York State AFL-CIO announced endorsements of candidates running for State Senate and Assembly. The endorsements took place at the State Federation’s 32nd Constitutional Convention.

Mario Cilento, President of the New York State AFL-CIO, said, “The endorsement of the New York State AFL-CIO is not just a piece of paper. We will coordinate grassroots campaigns and get out the vote efforts throughout the state to ensure that our members understand the critical issues in these elections and just how important it is that they get to the polls and support our endorsed candidates.”

Members will be contacted on the job and at home through member mailings, worksite flyers, phone bank operations and a “labor-to-neighbor” program, where union members visit other members in the area to discuss a particular race.

The following candidates were endorsed:
