TWU Local 101 Endorses Sal Albanese for Mayor

Transport Workers Union Local 101, comprised of more than 1,500 National Grid employees, announced its endorsement last week for Democratic Mayoral candidate and former Bay Ridge City Council Member Sal Albanese.

In a statement, Local 101 president Mike Conigliaro praised Albanese for advocating fair treatment for working New Yorkers like his members. Albanese, Conigliaro said, from sponsoring the city's first living wage law to standing with the city's teachers and bus drivers, has that "rare combination of courage and skill" it takes to get the job done.

Accepting the endorsement, Albanese praised TWU members for their dedication to restoring power in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, saying he hoped to bring that same kind of dedication to public service with him to City Hall.
