The Civil Service Employees Association (CSEA) announced that it has endorsed Joe Morelle’s candidacy for the 25th Congressional District. CSEA represents approximately 300,000 active and retired, public and private sector employees, including 45,000 members in Western Region 6 which serves Monroe County.
"I've known Joe for years and know that he will stand up for working families in Congress. Your vote matters in this primary so be sure and vote Joe on Tuesday, June 26th" Bess Watts, CSEA Local 828 President Monroe County.
Morelle, who served as a state Assemblymember representing the towns of Brighton, Irondequoit and parts of the city of Rochester, has spent a lifetime in public service working to advance the best interests of working people. In the Assembly, Morelle has successfully fought for the passage of legislation to raise the minimum wage in New York State, establish paid family leave to ease the burden on our working families, improve access to healthcare for all people, bring millions of dollars in infrastructure improvements to our area, and increase workforce development training to ensure individuals have the skills and training they need to be successful.
Watts added, "we miss Louise Slaughter and know we can never replace her, but knowing that her family supports Joe gives me comfort that Joe is the best candidate to represent our interests in Washington."
