District Council 37, the city's largest public employee union, endorses candidates in Sept. 13, 2012 Primary

District Council 37, the city’s largest public employee union with 121,000 members and 50,000 retirees, has endorsed the following candidates for the New York State Legislature on Primary Day, Thursday, September 13, 2012.

"The DC 37 Executive Board endorsed this list of very qualified candidates, following a recommendation by the DC 37 Screening Committee, because of their proven record in support of the issues important to the men and women we represent who work so hard to serve New York,” said DC 37 Executive Director Lillian Roberts. “We firmly believe that these candidates will best represent the interests of the labor community of our city and our state. Our endorsement brings with it a pledge to work diligently on their behalf with our powerful, sophisticated field operations to get out the vote. We have a proven record of successfully supporting our endorsed candidates”.

Roberts added, “I want to thank the DC 37 Screening Committee, the DC 37 Executive Board for their hard work and deliberations throughout this election season and most especially for their selections of our endorsed candidates.”
