  • CSEA Suspends all State Political Endorsements and Contributions
    Posted On: Mar 19, 2012

    Tier 6 political deal has serious consequences
    Statement from CSEA President Danny Donohue

    ALBANY - "CSEA will immediately suspend all state political endorsements and contributions. This unprecedented action is a direct result of the political deal between Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state legislative leadership, Senate Republicans and Assembly Democrats, trading the future retirement security of working New Yorkers for legislative redistricting lines.

    This action is necessary to give our union the opportunity to re-evaluate our political relationships and make judgments about the criteria we use in determining who has earned and deserves our support. It is also important to consider how our support is valued.

    CSEA will also use this time to consult with our brother and sister unions and other allied community organizations about how we can collectively address the disrespect and disenfranchisement of working people by our state's elected officials.

    New Yorkers should understand that lawmakers' actions did not result from meaningful debate and good judgment - it resulted from political expediency - and it will have harmful consequences to people and communities now and for a long time to come.

    CSEA will seek better ways to hold elected officials accountable and ensure that the voices of working people will be heard and addressed in New York state."
