Union Endorses Lee Zeldin
America New York and New Jersey State Conference, as well as TWU AFL-CIO Local 252, has endorsed Representative Lee Zeldin’s re-election effort. The groups represent almost 140,000 members in the airline, railroad, transit, university, utilities, services, and gaming sectors.
Debra Hagan, Local 252’s president, said in a statement that Mr. Zeldin has made “improvements to the quality of life for all working men and women throughout Suffolk County and New York State.” She added that Mr. Zeldin’s voting record demonstrates his support for improving local infrastructure and for veterans’ programs and benefits.
“Local 252 is proud to endorse your candidacy for re-election,” she said, “and will actively support you in the months and years to come.”
The Transport Workers Union told the congressman that it would “actively engage our respective membership, retirees, and supporters who reside in your Long Island district to head to the polls and cast their vote to see your successful return to our great nation’s House of Representatives.”
In his own statement, Mr. Zeldin expressed his gratitude to the unions. “These hard workers are vital to our community and way of life and it will be a privilege to continue to fight for them, their families, and our region in the months and years ahead,” he said.
