The full slate of general election endorsements is available for download (PDF).
“As cornerstones of our communities, government support for public schools, colleges and hospitals has never been more critical as we continue to weather the effects of the coronavirus pandemic,” NYSUT President Andy Pallotta said. “We need elected officials who will stand up for teachers, School-Related Professionals, medical professionals and those they serve, and we believe this slate of candidates can best deliver for the New Yorkers who will rely on them in the halls of power.”
NYSUT-endorsed candidates receive grassroots support from NYSUT members, including phone banking, door knocking and literature distribution. The union also makes financial contributions from voluntary donations through VOTE-COPE, the union’s non-partisan political action committee.
