On Wednesday, SEIU 32BJ announced their endorsements of Eric Adams for Mayor, Jumaane Williams for Public Advocate and Brad Lander for Comptroller, in addition to candidates for six borough-wide offices, and 44 City Council seats.
Members endorsed Vanessa Gibson for Bronx Borough President, Antonio Reynoso for Brooklyn Borough President, Eric González for Brooklyn District Attorney, Mark Levine for Manhattan Borough President, Alvin Bragg for Manhattan District Attorney and Donovan Richards for Queens Borough President.
“As our city continues to fight against COVID-19 and works hard to come back from the effects of the virus on our communities and our economy, our members want candidates who will fight for them and for all working New Yorkers, and push for a worker-led recovery. Our members are confident that the candidates they have endorsed will do that, and more,” said SEIU 32BJ President Kyle Bragg. “With so many members of our city government coming in fresh and taking on new roles, our members relish the opportunity to support a new cadre of leaders to take our city to where it needs to go next.”
The union previously endorsed Adams and several other candidates included here for the June New York primaries. The union’s executive board determined endorsements for the November elections in September.
SEIU 32BJ represents about 85,000 members in the city who work in as residential porters, doormen and women, window washers, office cleaners, security officers, airport wheelchair attendants, school janitors and other building service jobs.
