PATCHOGUE, NY – The North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters today endorsed Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) for re-election to Congress in 2020.
“Not only has Congressman Zeldin fought hard to ensure our economy gets back on its feet in the wake of COVID-19, he has stood up to protect our rights by vehemently opposing National Right to Work and been instrumental in battling efforts to undermine prevailing wage laws. He has consistently delivered for Long Island, and will continue to do so,” Anthony Villa of the North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters said.
“As someone who was born and raised in a union household, I understand the vital role labor plays in keeping our country moving, which is why I’ve continued to drive home good-paying jobs, like those spurred by Brookhaven National Lab’s new $2 billion Electron Ion Collider now coming to our district,” Congressman Zeldin said. “I am honored to have the endorsement of the Carpenters and look forward to working alongside them to ensure we get our economy booming and people working again here on Long Island.”
The North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters represents 28,000 members.
This is Congressman Zeldin’s 3rd labor endorsement of the 2020 cycle, having previously been endorsed by the SMART Transportation Division of the Long Island Railroad and Plumbers Local 200.
