WAPPINGERS FALLS, NY—NYS Senator Sue Serino today announced that her campaign has officially been endorsed by twelve local, regional and statewide groups of first responders.
In a letter announcing Serino’s endorsement, the group’s Legislative Counsel, Robert Ungar, cited her “experience and concern for public safety, public safety professionals, working families, the state’s education system and economy” as a “major asset to the people of New York” and the driving forces behind the endorsement.
Ungar said,“Now more than ever, it is important that we elect individuals who will protect the economy and growth of New York as well as remember the hard working people who live here. They say that all politics is local. Many politicians lose sight of that fact after being elected. We are confident that you will never forget the people that elected you and will always fight to protect and enhance the interests of the people of New York State.”
Senator Sue Serino praised New York’s first responders in accepting the endorsement saying, “Our first responders make incredible sacrifices for the people of our state and our community each and every day. It is an incredible honor to receive an endorsement from such selfless and honorable New Yorkers. I am humbled to have their support, and I will continue to fight tirelessly to ensure that our first responders have a strong independent voice fighting for them in Albany.”
