From universal Pre-K and universal free school lunch to expanded affordable housing, improved community policing and treating the city’s public employee work force with a degree of respect not seen in the two previous administrations, the mayor has stood up for working families.
“Our city still faces daunting challenges. We will work with Mayor de Blasio to overcome them.”District Council 37 is New York City's largest public employee union, with 125,000 members and 50,000 retirees.
