Updated: Jul 5

New York, NY - Today, the National Association of Letter Carriers, NY Metro American Postal Workers Union, the National Association of Postal Supervisors, National Postal Mail Handlers Union, and the National Rural Letter Carriers Association endorsed Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney for re-election to represent New York’s 12th Congressional District.

“NALC’s 300,000 members are proud to stand with Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney. Under the most challenging of circumstances, she has not wavered in her commitment to protecting the Postal Service network. Time and again, she has stood by letter carriers and we are proud to stand by her,” said Fredric Rolando, National Association of Letter Carriers President.

“To those who depend upon a public Postal Service: small business owners, senior citizens, military veterans, patients who receive medications through the mail and those who vote by mail, this is a crucial time. Assaults on the public Postal Service by would-be privatizers threaten the institution and must be resisted on behalf of postal customers and those who work for the post office. There is no better friend to the public Postal Service than Congressional Representative Carolyn B. Maloney. She leads not only with words but with her actions, The New York Metro Area Postal Union, the largest local in the American Postal Workers Union, wholeheartedly endorses Carolyn B. Maloney for re-election to Congress in the 12th CD,” said Jonathan Smith, NY Metro American Postal Workers Union President.

Even before Rep. Carolyn Maloney was first elected to Congress, she championed a universal, government-run U.S. Postal Service that provides Americans with high-quality, reliable, and affordable mail service. The congresswoman’s heroic efforts to shepherd passage of the recently signed-into-law Postal Service Reform Act (H.R. 3076) demonstrates her unassailable legislative skill and unique ability to work across party lines. The National Association of Postal Supervisors was honored to work in partnership with Rep. Maloney to pass the bill, which helps to stabilize the finances and operations of the U.S. Postal Service,” said President Ivan Butts, Executive Vice President Chuck Mulidore and Secretary-Treasurer Jimmy Warden, National Association of Postal Supervisors.

"On behalf of the National Postal Mail Handlers Union, which serves as the exclusive representative for more than 45,000 mail handlers employed by the U.S. Postal Service, and its Local 300, which represents more than 5,000 mail handlers living and working in and around the New York Metropolitan Area, we fully endorse Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney's re-election as Representative from the 12th Congressional District of New York in the United States House of Representatives in 2022,” said Paul Hogrogian, National Postal Mail Handlers Union President.

“The National Rural Letter Carriers’ Association (NRLCA) supports Representative Carolyn B. Maloney for re-election. Since her election to Congress in 1992, Rep. Maloney has been a steadfast supporter for rural letter carriers and issues impacting the Postal Service. As Chairwoman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, she introduced the bipartisan Postal Service Reform Act to help preserve and strengthen the Postal Service and was instrumental in its ultimate passage into law. As part of the Postal Preservation Caucus, she helped ensure that postal stimulus legislation was passed to protect vital USPS services during the COVID pandemic.

“She continues to be a vocal advocate for rural letter carriers, and has consistently sponsored or co-sponsored legislation endorsed by the NRLCA. We thank Rep. Maloney for her support and look forward to working with her in the future,” said Ronnie Stutts, National Rural Letter Carriers Association President.

“I am deeply grateful for the overwhelming support from my postal Union partners,” said Rep. Maloney. “They were all critical allies in passing my landmark legislation which saved the United States Postal Service, and I am honored to have their endorsements and support in my re-election campaign.”
