Local 100: Espaillat for Congress

Local 100 President John Samuelsen and State Senator Adriano Espaillat went before the press on June 5 to announce that Local 100 has endorsed Senator Espaillat for Congress in the newly created 13th District in Manhattan and the Bronx.

Pointing to the energy with which Senator Espaillat has defended the transit system and transit workers in Albany, President Samuelsen declared that we need the same in Washington, a Congressman “with a bold vision to fight for a strong public transit system in New York and for all the issues facing our families. Adriano Espaillat will be that Congressman.” 

Senator Espaillat in turn emphasized the importance of mass transit as an engine driving economic recovery in the city and nation. He welcomed the endorsement of New York’s transit workers, pointing out that his support is coming from mavericks.

The Democratic primary will be held on June 26th.
