NY-26: Organized Labor Endorses Jon Powers

by on June 29, 2008

Jon Powers, the self-described fiscal conservative, has received the endorsement of the New York State AFL-CIO.

Democratic congressional hopeful Jon Powers received a major boost to his campaign Friday when the New York State AFL-CIO took the unusual step of offering an “early endorsement” to his candidacy.

“As a result of Jon’s long-standing commitment to the ideals of working people, he has received substantial support within the local labor movement in the 26th Congressional District,” state AFL-CIO President Denis Hughes said.

It is expected the state federation will coordinate an aggressive grass-roots field operation and initiate mailings, phone bank operations, work site fliers and door-to-door visits to union households on behalf of the candidate.

Well, there’s another special interest Jon Powers will be beholden to if he wins.
