Labor Union With more than 3,400 members backs Senator Carlucci for NY-17
(New City, NY) – Today, Democratic congressional candidate, State Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Westchester) was endorsed by Teamsters Local 445 for New York’s 17th congressional district.
Teamsters Local 445 represents more than 3,400 members in the Hudson Valley in fields like construction, public employment, freight, health care, warehouse, law enforcement, public and school busing, and industrial.
“In Washington, we need someone like David Carlucci who has the record and experience to deliver for working middle-class families. What we don’t need is someone who requires on the job training. Labor unions are under attack in Washington, and we trust Carlucci at the table,” explained Barry Russell, Teamsters Local 445 Secretary-Treasurer and Principal Officer.
“When our unions are strong, our economy is stronger. I thank Teamsers Local 445 for their support. In Washington, I will fight for every worker to have a living wage and quality health care,” Senator Carlucci told supporters.
Carlucci has previously been endorsed by labor heavyweights, Rockland County Building and Construction Trades Council (RCBCTC), which is made up of 21 active unions in Rockland County, and IBEW Local Union 363, which represents thousands of members in New York State.
It’s been widely rumored that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is considering the race, presumably in an effort to succeed Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House.
