Results of CSEA Statewide Officer Election

THURSDAY, FEB. 13, 2020


ALBANY – CSEA members throughout New York State have voted to elect current union president Mary E. Sullivan to continue to lead the statewide union for the next four years.

In a voting process overseen by the American Arbitration Association, secret ballots from union members were counted today at their Manhattan offices. Sullivan was the winner, securing the largest number of votes, besting three other candidates vying for the union’s top leadership post.

Sullivan’s term will begin March 1, 2020 and will continue through February 29, 2024. Last November, Sullivan assumed the position of CSEA president following the retirement of longtime president Danny Donohue.

“I am grateful our members put their faith in me and our leadership team to continue our challenging work ahead,” Sullivan said. “We will keep bringing workers together to fight for our piece of the American Dream, and to build a stronger and more inclusive union that delivers better working conditions for our members, and better public services for all of New York.”

Sullivan has been a union activist for more than 35 years, starting her career as an employee of the Herkimer County Department of Social Services, and advancing through the union ranks. Sullivan was elected statewide executive vice president in 1994, serving in that role for 25 years.
