BEACON, NY—Senator Sue Serino was in Beacon this morning to join with local members of the Civil Service Employees Association (CSEA) to announce their official endorsement of her campaign for re-election to the State Senate. Serino is running for re-election in the 41st Senate District which includes most of Dutchess and parts of Putnam counties.
Representing over 300,000 active and retired public and private sector employees throughout New York, the union is a driving force in protecting the rights of workers and their families throughout the state.
In a letter announcing the endorsement, CSEA President, Danny Donohue, said, “CSEA members need elected officials who will fight for working people so that they can earn wages that keep up with ever increasing costs. We need elected officials who will fight to maintain good jobs that benefit our communities. CSEA knows that building strong communities starts with good economic and tax policies that benefit everyone as opposed to just those at the top.”
Calling Serino a ‘champion for hard-working New Yorkers,’ President Donohue later said, “Senator Serino is an independent voice who has proven herself to be a champion for hard-working New Yorkers, standing with them time and again on the issues that make a meaningful difference here in our state. CSEA is confident that we can continue to count on Senator Serino to stand with New York’s working people and we are proud to endorse her campaign for re-election.”
At a meet and greet event with local members at CSEA’s Southern Region headquarters, Senator Serino proudly accepted the endorsement saying, “New York’s public employees work tirelessly each and every day to keep our state, and our community running and they need a leader they can count on to fight for them in Albany. It has been my mission since day one to be the partner they deserve and I am so proud that my work to cut taxes and create jobs is being recognized by CSEA and workers throughout our area. Their endorsement is invaluable and I will continue to work hand-in-hand with public employees here in our area and beyond to move our community, and our state, forward.”
