but to their communities. Local government elected leaders make important policy and budgetary decisions that directly affect New Yorkers’ quality of life every day.
Through CSEA’s member-driven endorsement process, our union has made more than 100 endorsements in races across the state.
Stay informed about the races in your community by visiting cseany. org/vote. You can also reach the web page by scanning the QR code.
