Pearl River, NY – 3/13/2024… Today, Congressman Mike Lawler announced the endorsement of LIUNA-NY, an organization with over 40,000 unionized construction workers across the state of New York. This comes on the heels of the endorsement of the Laborers Local 754, a local LIUNA chapter.

“Congressman Lawler has been a staunch supporter of the construction trades during his time in office. His hard work to create local jobs, grow the economy, and support our members is greatly appreciated, and we are thrilled to endorse him in the race for New York’s 17th District,” said Vincent Albanese, Executive Director of the NYS Laborers’ PAC. “We look forward to working with him in the coming years and thank him for his support of our members.”

“Local 754 has always recognized and appreciated your commitment to the people you represent beginning with your first term in the NYS Assembly. Your ability to see the needs of your constituents and your tireless effort in addressing those needs is rare in this political climate. We appreciate your willingness to work across the aisle with your Democratic colleagues,” said Stephen Reich, Business Manager of the Laborers’ Local 754. “Although we do not agree 100% on all issues, your commitment of the needs of the working men and women of the 17th Congressional District is unwavering. It is nice to have a friend in Washington that actually listens and is available. In this regard you are unmatched.”

“I’m thrilled to have the endorsements of LIUNA-NY and the Laborers Local 754 in the race for New York’s 17th District,” stated Congressman Mike Lawler. “The backbone of the Hudson Valley community are our working families, and none more so than those who work in the construction and building trades.”

“In Congress, I’ve been proud to support legislation that supports infrastructure investment in the Hudson Valley, creating good paying, middle-class jobs for folks in LIUNA-NY, Laborers’ Local 754, and other unions,” Lawler added. “I’ll never stop fighting for the middle-class, those who work in the construction trades, and their families.”
