New York City & Vicinity District Council of Carpenters (NYCDCC) Endorses Michael Blake for Congress (NY-15)


New York, NY – The New York City & Vicinity District Council of Carpenters has issued an endorsement to 2020 Congressional Candidate for New York’s 15th district, Assembly Member Michael Blake. The New York City District Council of Carpenters represents 22,000 union members.

Assembly Member Michael Blake has a goal to provide and sustain a stable lifestyle for the hardworking men and women of New York State. He won the endorsement of the District Council of Carpenters for standing with working class New Yorkers, recognizing the value of unions and having proven himself to be a strong ally of labor. Now more than ever, it is critical for elected officials to stand on the side of working people as unions are under attack at home, in New York, and at the highest levels of government. As we head into a Presidential Election year, we need the strongest representatives in New York to preserve the state of unions. Assembly Member Michael Blake will represent that voice of labor in Washington D.C.


As a son of labor, I am thrilled to receive the endorsement of the New York City & Vicinity District Council of Carpenters to be the next Member of Congress for New York's 15th district as the Carpenters recognize and support our #BelieveintheBx vision to create jobs and opportunities for all. The union carpenters have been and continue to be great neighbors in The Bronx, and, I am confident that together we can bring jobs, apprenticeships, Justice and a better way of life for all Bronxites in the 15th Congressional District.


“The New York City & Vicinity District Council of Carpenters is proud to endorse Assembly Member Michael Blake in his bid for Congress in District 15,” stated Executive Secretary-Treasurer Joseph Geiger. “Assembly Member Blake has already shown his commitment to communities throughout New York City, and I am confident that under his leadership, he will provide a pathway to more secure career opportunities and growth for the hardworking men and women in our area.”

Together, we #BelieveInTheBronx
