Endorsements for Thiele

Assemblyman Fred. W. Thiele Jr. has picked up two more endorsements as he runs to keep the seat he has held since 1996.

Mr. Thiele, who is running on the Independence, Democratic, Working Families, and Women’s Equality Party lines, has been endorsed by the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees and the Long Island Environmental Voters Forum.

The employees’ federation, the state’s largest public service union, has more than 400,000 members. Thanking the union for its endorsement, Mr. Thiele said in a release that he will “continue to defend the rights of these members and all working men and women who provide essential public services that New Yorkers rely on every day.” 

The assemblyman has won endorsement from the nonprofit and nonpartisan Environmental Voters Forum many times. “I have been a longtime advocate for protecting our natural resources, and I look forward to continuing my work on environmental conservation on behalf of my district and all of New York State,” he said. 

Mr. Thiele has also been endorsed by the New York League of Conservation Voters, the New York State A.F.L.-C.I.O., Long Island Federation of Labor, Suffolk County Association of Municipal Employees, Public Employees Federation, Communications Workers of America Local 1108, Planned Parenthood Empire State Votes PAC Endorsement Committee, the Suffolk County Correction Officers Association, the New York State United Teachers, and the Civil Service Employees Association.
