Endorsement: The Working Families Party Endorses Laura Curran for Nassau County Executive

Today, the Working Families Party endorsed Democrat Laura Curran in the race to be Nassau's next County Executive.

Lisa Tyson, Director of the Long Island Progressive Coalition, in announcing the endorsement, said:

"Laura Curran will make Nassau County government accountable to working families instead of corrupt politicians who enrich themselves on our tax dollar. Chuck Lavine remains a friend and ally of the WFP and is exactly the type of advocate and leader we need in our State Legislature. ​ ​ "As a progressive who gets results, Laura Curran pledges to create good paying jobs, ensure sustainable and environmentally responsible development, and she is the best candidate to fix the mess in Mineola. The Working Families Party is proud to stand with Laura Curran and we look forward to a victory in November."

After receiving the endorsement of the Working Families Party, Laura Curran released the following statement:

“It means so much to have the endorsement of the Working Families Party and the support of their membership. As County Executive, I will fight day in and day out to better the lives of the hard-working families of Nassau County who help drive our economy forward. And I’ll continue my advocacy for our shared progressive values that will help bring Nassau into the 21st Century. We have a mess in Nassau County and I’m proud to have the Working Families Party standing with me as we fight to clean it up and return our government to the taxpayers.”

The WFP's endorsement adds to Curran's four endorsements from organized labor. In addition, Curran has been endorsed by the North Hempstead Democratic Committee, State Senators Todd Kaminsky and John Brooks as well as the Nassau County Democratic Committee's Executive Committee and Chairman Jay Jacobs.
