WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Democrat Andrew Falk has been endorsed by the Communications Workers of America (CWA) Local 1103.
Falk of Patterson is challenging incumbent Republican Steve Katz for the 94th Assembly District seat, which includes the towns of Somers and Yorktown in Westchester County and the towns of Carmel, Patterson, Putnam Valley and Southeast in Putnam County.
CWA said its endorsement was based on Falk’s vocal advocacy for New York’s working families and the need for a strong voice for middle class Hudson Valley residents.
“Every day, the dedicated men and women of the CWA are hard at work strengthening our local economy and growing the middle class,” said Falk. “It’s an honor to have their support and I look forward to working with them bring new jobs to the Hudson Valley and provide a strong voice for working families.”
Falk said he’s running for the State Assembly because he believes New York’s economy is not generating enough good-paying job opportunities to ensure children who grow up here can stay and raise their own families here. His priorities include fighting for an increase in the minimum wage and equal pay for women.
“Andrew Falk is committed to the issues that affect our families in a real way every day — good paying jobs, education and fairness in the workplace,” said Joseph Mayhew, secretary/treasurer of CWA Local 1103. “We are proud to support and endorse him as a New York State Assembly candidate.”
