Hudson Valley Labor Federation Endorses Donnery For OC ExecutiveAug 8th, 2013 | By HV Insider | Category: Political
Hudson Valley Labor Federation’s regional labor council voted early last week to overwhelmingly endorse Democrat Roxanne Donnery for Orange County Executive. The federation has over 23,000 registered members in Orange County.
“When it comes to serving the people of Orange County, Roxanne Donnery has been on the right side of every major issue.” said Sparrow Tobin, Hudson Catskill Central Labor Council president and NYSUT Delegate.
Regarding three of the biggest issues facing Orange County residents Tobin said, “It is clear where Roxanne stands on the Government Center, Valley View, and local job creation. In her tenure in office she has held the line on taxes, stood up for our seniors, been an advocate for open and honest government, and fought against the culture of dirty politics that has infested the County Executive’s Office.”
Tobin said it is obvious that Orange County needs to head in a new direction and was adamant about electing leaders who look out for workers and the middle class. “We know whose side Roxanne is on” said Tobin. “She is looking out for working families, our seniors and the tax payer. Her record proves it.”
“I am deeply honored and proud to receive the endorsement of the Hudson Catskill Central Labor Council in our quest to end the dysfunction and restore trust in Orange County government,” said Donnery, upon learning of her recent endorsement.
Focusing on the same issues Tobin stressed, Donnery stated that as County Executive, she “will continue to fight for working men and women, whether they work in government or in the private sector. I will continue to fight for high paying local jobs and to keep Valley View County-owed and run.”
