We are proud to endorse her in her upcoming reelection.” - Danny Grodotzke, Business Manager, Plumbers Local Union 200

“County Executive Curran has been a steadfast supporter of family-sustaining wages and benefits on construction projects in Nassau County.

“The North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters represents over 29,500 members who are dedicated to their craft and set the highest standards for skills in the construction industry.
