This week we celebrated the Labor Day holiday, a day where families can enjoy the summer and reflect on the benefits secured by organized workers for all Americans. At the bargaining table and the ballot box, the labor movement helped secure rights many now take for granted.
That’s why I’m proud to have earned the support of the labor movement as I campaign for a second term as mayor of our Village.
This year, I’ve been endorsed by the Westchester Putnam Central Labor Body, AFL-CIO, which is comprised of affiliates from the American Federation of Musicians to Utility Workers Union of America, and the Building and Construction Trades Council of Westchester-Putnam, which represents more than two dozen construction unions. The Working Families Party, a party founded by a grassroots coalition of community organizations and union activists, has also placed my name on their ballot line for the November election.
I am humbled and honored to receive these affirmations from these representatives of workers in our community. I appreciate this recognition of my commitment to ensuring that working families have ample opportunities in the Village of Croton for good jobs, affordable homes and a healthy environment.
Brian Pugh, Mayor
