Nick Reisman reports in New York State of Politics that the Teamsters Local 294 endorsed Republican Rep. John Faso Aug. 27 over Democrat Antonio Delgado, Green Party candidate Steve Greenfield, and independent Luisa Parker. “Since taking office, Congressman Faso has been a dedicated supporter of efforts to guarantee solvency of the New York State Teamsters Conference Pension and Retirement Fund,” said John Bulgaro, the local’s president. “We thank him for his efforts and look forward to continue working with him to ensure our members’ retirement money is safe and accessible in the future.” Faso, a freshman Congressperson in a swing district, thanked the union for their support. “It is a privilege to work with Local 294 on issues important to its members and their families,” said Faso. “I’m pleased to have earned their support in this election. I will continue to fight for our commercial vehicle operators, who have been and will continue to be a linchpin in America’s economic engine.” Read the full story in New York State of Politics.
