Democrat Albert Baldeo Wins Prominent Endorsement of District Council 37 for State Assembly

New York City’s Largest Public Employees Union makes First Major Labor Endorsement in Assembly Race

 

Albert Baldeo, candidate for the 38th Assembly district in Queens, today announced that he has received the endorsement of New York City labor union DC 37. With 125,000 members and 56 active local chapters, DC 37 represents public employees working in every sector of municipal government, including hospitals, libraries, social service centers and city colleges.

 

“We strongly believe that Albert has the right experience and dedication needed to represent his constituents in Albany,” said Lillian Roberts, Executive Director of District Council 37. “Our pick was easy given his record of results and service in his own community.”

 

“I am truly honored and humbled to receive the endorsement of District Council 37,” said Albert Baldeo, candidate for the 38th Assembly district. “As Assemblyman, I will work tirelessly to enact meaningful change that will ensure the residents of this district have quality and affordable healthcare, private contracting will be held accountable, and that we never lose sight of the commendable work that city employees accomplish each day.”

 

Among the many chapters affiliated with DC 37 include those of Metropolitan Museum of Art, Queens Library Guild, NYC Laborers and NYC Board of Education Employees.

 

District Council 37 is an affiliate of the larger and nationally well-known American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, or AFSCME for short. AFSCME is recognized as the largest public employee and health care workers union in the United States. It organizes its membership and lobbies on behalf of public issues such as health care, pension security, women’s issues and taxes.

 

This is the first major endorsement by any labor organization in this Assembly race. Albert Baldeo also has the support of Senate Democratic Conference Leader John Sampson and Congressman Gregory Meeks, and retains the most cash on hand out of the other candidates vying for the seat.

 

The 38th Assembly district includes the neighborhoods of Ridgewood, Glendale, Richmond Hill, Ozone Park and Woodhaven. The Democratic primary will be held on September 15th, 2009.
