CSEA is kicking off a busy election year with endorsements in a special election, as well as endorsements in New York’s Primary Election.

Late last year, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to remove U.S. Rep. George Santos after a House Ethics Committee report found evidence that he broke federal laws, stole from his campaign, and lied to voters and donors.

In accordance with the state constitution, Gov. Kathy Hochul announced a special election for February 13 to fill Santos’ seat in New York’s 3rd Congressional District, which includes parts of Nassau County and Queens.

CSEA has proudly endorsed Democrat and former U.S. Rep. Tom Suozzi in the Special Election.

Suozzi has a long relationship with CSEA, particularly with members in Nassau County. He has always had a willingness to stand up for CSEA members, and his work in Congress demonstrated support for public employees.

Suozzi will bring some normalcy back to Congress after a tumultuous year of controversy surrounding the district. He has a strong reputation as a moderate Democrat who is always willing to work with Republicans to do what is right for Long Islanders and all New Yorkers.

CSEA will participate in labor efforts to support Suozzi. More details will be announced on our union’s elections web page at or on our union’s social media pages.
