PEF announced its endorsement of Democrat Andrew Cuomo for governor at the New York State AFL-CIO COPE Convention held at The Desmond in Colonie last week. The endorsement was the result of a vote by PEF's Executive Board at its quarterly meeting.
"Andrew Cuomo earned our endorsement because of his positions on two key issues for us - reducing the state's wasteful use of consultants, and his plan to rein in hundreds of unaccountable public authorities that are packed with patronage appointments and duplicate services provided by state agencies," said PEF President Kenneth Brynien.
"We agree with Mr. Cuomo that New York deserves better government especially on these issues."
