WHITE PLAINS, NY – Members of 32BJ SEIU, the nation’s largest property services union, have spent the past week knocking on doors for Democrat Christine Peters, whom they endorsed last week in the Westchester County Legislature special election to replace Bernice Spreckman.
“Christine Peters would provide balance on the Westchester County Legislature by adding a much needed voice for working men and women in Yonkers and Mount Vernon,” said John Santos, Vice-President of 32BJ SEIU. “As a first-generation immigrant, a social worker, and a single mom, Ms. Peters has a deep understanding of the difficulty working people have getting by in one of the most expensive regions of the nation. She is a firm supporter of affordable housing and of larger issues such as the New York State DREAM Act. We have been proud to support her efforts in this special election on Tuesday.”
With more than 145,000 members in 11 states and Washington DC, including 4,000 members in the Hudson Valley, 32BJ is the largest building service workers union in the country
