Hopewell Junction, NY (February 2, 2018) – The Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters (NRCC) is pleased to announce its endorsement of Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney in his re-election campaign for New York’s 18th Congressional District.
“It’s been my pleasure to work alongside the carpenters to advance legislation to jumpstart our economy and create good-paying jobs in construction and renovation,” said Congressman Maloney. “I’m honored to receive this endorsement and l look forward to continuing our work together.”
The Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters takes the issue of endorsing elected official candidates seriously and only endorses candidates who hold the same values as we do of protecting and preserving workers’ rights. We only provide endorsements to candidates that support Davis-Bacon protections, encourage the use of Project Labor Agreements, fight 1099 Worker Misclassification and support fair wages and benefits for working people.
“We are pleased to endorse Congressman Maloney’s re-election bid in 2018 and will fully support his campaign through get out the vote efforts, as he believes in defending worker rights by fighting back repeal of Davis Bacon wage protections and other legislation that hurts the paycheck and benefits of middle-class workers,” said Bill Banfield, Southeast New York Regional Manager. “Congressman Maloney has worked closely with the Carpenters Union in the past and we look forward to him representing individuals in Dutchess, Orange, Putnam and Westchester counties for another term.”
