Ahead of Her Rally to Unveil Second Term Agenda, Laura Curran Announces Major Endorsements from Long Island Labor Groups

Nassau Working Families Deserve Laura Curran’s Steady Leadership for Tomorrow

BALDWIN, NEW YORK - On the eve of the County Executive’s rally to unveil her vision for Nassau’s next chapter, Curran for Nassau announced the endorsements of two major labor groups whose support will be essential in building tomorrow’s Nassau. The Building and Construction Trades Council of Nassau and Suffolk Counties, AFL-CIO and the Long Island Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO offered resounding letters of endorsement for the County Executive’s continued leadership in the next four years.

The latest wave of endorsements adds to a list of nearly two dozen labor groups determined to re-elect the County Executive this November. Throughout her first term, the County Executive served as a tireless advocate for Nassau’s working families. She fought for fair labor conditions and expanded opportunities for Nassau’s workforce. She kept workers safe during the pandemic; providing PPE and ensuring frontline workers were among the first in line to get vaccinated.

Tomorrow, Long Island Federation of Labor President John Durso will join the County Executive at her ‘Nassau’s Next Chapter’ rally, to unveil how her administration plans to work in partnership with labor to build tomorrow’s Nassau through bold, sustainable infrastructure and expanded apprenticeship programs.

After formally endorsing County Executive Curran’s re-election, each union released the following statements:

“We all believe Laura Curran has been a prudent leader who continues to help Nassau County maintain its strong and positive growth and economic development. The Council recognizes Laura Curran’s advocacy for each of the trades, made clear by her positive message to communities of color, encouraging women and men to join our workforce. Her stance on Project Labor Agreements and community involvement in local projects helps promote relationships with developers and get things done… When we are asked who we can count on, we all respond by stating ‘Laura Curran.’ She will keep us moving forward with her proven brand of leadership.” - Matthew Aracich, President, Building and Construction Trades Council of Nassau and Suffolk Counties, AFL-CIO

“Our support of County Executive Laura Curran is based on her record of commitment to working families. We are confident that Laura Curran shares with us a common vision about the future of Long Island. Good jobs, with decent pay and benefits, are the basis of a stable middle class lifestyle. That is something we can achieve together... We look forward to working with her to build opportunities for the next generation, to live and work here on Long Island in safe, prosperous communities.” - John R. Durso, President, Long Island Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO.
