New York State Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. has earned the endorsement of the Civil Service Employees Association and the New York State United Teachers, a federation of more than 1,200 local unions representing current and retired employees in New York schools, colleges and healthcare facilities, in his bid for re-election this November, according to two press releases issued by his office last week. Mr. Thiele is a member of the Independence Party.
“I am honored to be endorsed in my re-election to the State Assembly by the CSEA. Unions are the backbone of this country,” Mr. Thiele said about the endorsement. “They established a foundation for job security and economic stability for all working people. I support, and will continue to fight for, the right of every person to have access to good jobs, good benefits and fair wages, as they are fundamental to achieving a sustainable standard of living.”
There will be no primaries for the State Assembly. The general election is November 6.
