NEW YORK, N.Y. – Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Local 1 and Local 7 endorsed Rebecca Seawright, Democratic candidate for the 76th State Assembly District in Manhattan’s Upper Eastside and Roosevelt Island.
“I am extremely proud to receive the endorsement of the Bricklayers,” said Seawright. “Strong community-based trade and professional unions are the backbone of this city, and I’m proud to have the endorsement of the hardworking men and women of Local 1 and 7. I will be an advocate for working families – and against so-called Right to Work legislation that threatens to undermine unions, legislation which I strongly oppose. I will work every day to ensure that working men and women of New York City get the retirement benefits they deserve, as well as access to education, affordable housing, and quality health care.”
