NYSUT issues endorsements in state races, federal races
ALBANY, N.Y. May 29, 2020 — New York State United Teachers today issued another round of endorsements in more than 20 races for state legislative offices and recommended more than a dozen congressional candidates for endorsements by the union’s national affiliates, the American Federation of Teachers and National Education Association.
“Now more than ever, it’s clear that public schools are cornerstones of our communities, and we need representatives across New York who recognize that and will fight for public education in the halls of power,” NYSUT President Andy Pallotta said. “We are confident that the dozens of candidates we’ve endorsed already this election cycle are the types of leaders who can deliver for New Yorkers. Especially amid this global pandemic, support for policies and funding that will move public education forward is critical as our educators work doubly hard to provide educational services and other essential resources for students and families.”
