BREAKING: UNITED AUTO WORKERS ENDORSES JACKIE GORDON IN NY-02
UAW Region 9A New York Area CAP Council Joins Growing Coalition of Organizations Backing Gordon’s Campaign. 

BABYLON, NY— The Jackie Gordon for Congress campaign announced today that it has earned the endorsement of the United Auto Workers Region 9A New York Area CAP Council.

Region 9A represents approximately 37,000 active and retired UAW members and their families throughout New York, including 1,500 in New York’s Second Congressional District.

“It is clear that Jackie is far and away the most qualified candidate to represent the interests of working families in our great state,” said Region 9A Director Beverley Brakeman. “Not only is Jackie a combat veteran and public servant, but she is also a union member and has spent her career in education mentoring high school students in the trades. Jackie brings exactly the kind of fresh perspective that we need in Washington,” Brakeman continued.

“I am honored to receive this early endorsement from the UAW, and I look forward to working with my brothers and sisters in the labor movement to win this seat. I am committed to being a voice for workers and middle class families in Congress,” said Gordon.

The UAW represents a key endorsement as Gordon continues to consolidate support for her campaign in NY-02. They join a number of high profile organizations that have endorsed Gordon including EMILY’s List, End Citizens United, the Congressional Black Caucus PAC, Vote Vets, New Politics, and Planned Parenthood Action Fund. Just last month, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee also threw their full support behind Gordon, naming her to their highly competitive Red to Blue program.
