Dear Mr. Burke:
It is my great pleasure to inform you that the Board of Directors of New York State United Teachers has endorsed your candidacy for election to the New York State Assembly.
Throughout our state and nation, public employees and the unions that represent them are under attack by forces who seek to cut union protections and direct public dollars to private schools. As a result, NYSUT has been diligent in endorsing candidates whose positions and actions align with our goals. Your advocacy has earned you our endorsement, and I extend my congratulations.
NYSUT represents more that 600,000 classroom teachers and other school employees and retirees; academic and professional faculty at the state’s community colleges, SUNY and CUNY; and other education and health care professionals in public and private employment.
We appreciate your support for NYSUT and those we proudly serve.
