Cites Commitment to Working Men and Women,
Fight Against Job-Killing Trade Deals
Staten Island, NY–April 12th…The Donovan campaign today announced the endorsement of the influential New York State AFL-CIO, citing his exemplary commitment to working men and women and his fight against job-killing trade deals, among others.
The NYS AFL-CIO is a federation of 3,000 public sector, private sector and building trades unions throughout the state representing 2.5 million members, retirees and their families. They have previously endorsed Mr. Donovan in past elections as well.
“It means so much to me to once again have the support of the hardworking men and women of the NYS AFL-CIO in my campaign,” said Congressman Donovan. “As the son of a longshoreman and factory worker, I understand the struggles New York families face and I fight for them everyday in Congress. Working with President Trump, we are undoing the damage of the unfair trade deals my opponent voted for that have hurt our economy. I will always put American jobs and American workers first.”
NYS AFL-CIO President Mario Cilento said, “Throughout his time in Congress, Dan Donovan has demonstrated his commitment to his constituents, not Washington insiders, even if it wasn’t the politically easy thing to do. From fighting for 9/11 responders and survivors, to voting with working people against job killing trade deals, and fighting against a tax bill that hurts working families, he has proven he understands the values and priorities of the hardworking men and women of the 11th Congressional District. We look forward to a grassroots campaign to get our members to the polls to re-elect Daniel Donovan to Congress.”
