Statement by DC 37 Executive Director Henry Garrido on NYS midterm election results
“Tonight the working men and women of New York spoke loudly and clearly about our values, our priorities, and how we want to run our state. In record numbers, we rejected the bigoted politics of Trump in favor of the politics of inclusion and tolerance.
“We did this by re-electing Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and NYS Comptroller Tom DiNapoli, and by electing Letitia James the first African-American woman Attorney General of our great state.
“I congratulate them on their well-deserved victories and look forward to continue working with them on an agenda that benefits all New Yorkers.”District Council 37 is New York City's largest public employee union, with 125,000 members and 50,000 retirees.
