New York, NY - Today, The Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York endorsed Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney for re-election.
“The Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York is proud to endorse Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney for Congress in the 12th Congressional district. She is a passionate fighter for working people and deeply committed to ensuring good jobs at a fair wage. Congresswoman Maloney has brought to New York roughly $10 billion in federal infrastructure dollars that funded tens of thousands of good union jobs to build the Second Avenue Subway, East Side Access, Grand Central- Madison, Kosciuszko Bridge, and other projects that are improving the quality of life for all New Yorkers. After 9/11, she fought for health care and compensation for the men and women who became sick as a result of their exposure to the toxic chemicals released when the towers fell, including thousands of construction workers who came to work on the pile. Because of her compassion, dedication, and tenaciousness, we believe she is the best person to represent New York's 12th Congressional district in Congress,” said Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York, Gary LaBarbera, President.
“I am deeply grateful for the support of my longtime partner and ally, The Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York,” said Rep. Maloney. “Their support is invaluable - as it always has been - as we rebuild our City from the COVID-19 crisis with infrastructure projects that create good paying union jobs like the extension of the 2nd Avenue Subway and the completion of Grand Central Madison. The Building Trades has always been on my side even in the toughest battles like passing health care and compensation for 9/11 responders and survivors and repairs to our crumbling infrastructure in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York’s endorsement is critical in my campaign for re-election for NY-12, and I am glad they are on Team Maloney.”
