Dear Mr. Burke:

On behalf of the Civil Service Employees Association (CSEA), I am pleased to inform you of CSEA’s endorsement of your candidacy for New York State Assembly.

CSEA fights every day for the 300,000 active and retired, public and private sector employees that we represent across the state. From employees of the State to local government to the private sector, CSEA members provide the services that New Yorkers need and depend on every day.

At a time when the rights and benefits of working people are under attack across the nation, it is vitally important that we have elected officials who will partner with us in our fight for what is right. We need elected officials who will stand up for the right to organize and the right to collectively bargain. We need elected officials who will fight for good jobs, good benefits, and strong communities. And we need elected officials who will never quit on the working men and women who make our state great.

The CSEA is proud to endorse you because you hold these same values and have proven so time and time again. We are confident that you will be a strong partner with working men and women across this great state.
