News release

ALBANY, NY — PEF, the second-largest public sector union in New York, endorses Scott Gray for Member of the New York State Assembly in the 116th “River” District.

“Scott understands that high-quality constituent services require a high-quality workforce,” said PEF President Wayne Spence.” “PEF members work everywhere from hospitals to correctional facilities to the DMV. Scott realizes their quality of life is as important as the needs of the public they serve.”

“In order for public employees to provide the critical services that New Yorkers in the 116th District deserve, we must be competitive in pay and benefits for the jobs they perform for us all,” said Gray. “I’m grateful for PEF’s support and when I am the Assemblyman I will ensure the public employees’ efforts are recognized accordingly.” PEF represents 50,000 professional, scientific, and technical titles who deliver public services across the state.

PEF joins a growing list of labor organizations to endorse Scott Gray including Central Trades AFL-CIO, NYSUT, and IBEW Local 910.
