CWA-Endorsed Candidates Won Big in Primaries

Tuesday was the New York Democratic primary election for state legislative and local government races. CWA-endorsed candidates won big!

We're especially proud to announce that two CWA members won their races. CWA Local 1106 member Anthony Eramo won his primary for New York State Assembly in District 20 in a landslide! CWAers from Locals 1102, 1104, 1106, and 1108 deserve huge congratulations for their hard work volunteering for the campaign.

Congratulations to CWA Local 1107 Business Agent Dan Caprara who won his campaign for Clarkstown Town Council. CWA Local 1107 members did a great job getting out the vote for Dan.

There is a lot more work to do in preparation for election day in November. It's time for all hands on deck. Will you join us to phone bank for CWA-endorsed candidates? Click here to volunteer.

Here's a list of CWA-endorsed winners:

Thank you to western New York CWA locals who did a great job phone banking for Monica Wallace.

Many of these fights weren't easy. In fact, some of our endorsed candidates were under attack by a super PAC funded by hedge-fund profiteers and Alice Walton, heiress to the Wal-Mart fortune. The PAC is going after public school advocates and pushing to send pro-charter school candidates to Albany, but we fought back and won.

CWA endorsed-candidates lost in the 33rd Assembly District (Nantasha Williams), the 31st State Senate District (Micah Lasher), and the 40th State Senate District (Andrew Falk).

We are proud of CWA Local 1103 members for working so hard for Andy who is a fierce advocate for the issues that matter to working people.
