FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, NY – District Council 9 of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades issued its endorsement of New York State Assembly Member Michael Blake in his congressional run.
Assembly Member Michael Blake currently serves the 79th Assembly District, covering parts of the Bronx, and now he is in the race for the 15th Congressional District seat.
I am grateful for the endorsement of DC 9 who are Building A Better Bronx and support our #BelieveInTheBx vision for The 15th Congressional District to create jobs and opportunities for Union members across The Bronx and New York. For more than 100 years, DC 9's Painters are the men and women who bring to life a home, a building, a school and neighborhoods across The Bronx and New York,” said Assembly Member Michael Blake. “From being the ones who create jobs and apprenticeships for communities of color, women and New Yorkers to focusing on how Infrastructure will create opportunities for all Bronxites, DC9 continues to be a force for good. We will continue Building A Better Bronx together to remove lead from The Bronx when others failed to act while also demanding great wages and benefits for union workers.
“Assembly Member Michael Blake has been a tireless advocate for hardworking New Yorkers throughout the Bronx, and District Council 9 is proud to support Blake in his congressional race,” said Davon Lomax, Political Director for District Council 9 of the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades. “We have already seen Assembly Member Blake’s unparalleled commitment to his communities, ensuring every individual has access to equal opportunity, and now he will continue this work by serving as our Congressman.”
