Musumeci Announces Candidacy for Vice President

My fellow Union Brothers and Sisters, over the past few months I have received many emails requesting that I run for office in the district council elections.

Tonight I want to officially announce that I am a candidate for Vice President of the New York City District Council of Carpenters.

I am running for vice president because I believe our district council needs reform, and I'm ready to lead that effort.

I'm going to give this campaign all that I have to give, and I hope that you will join me as we take on the Unity Team.

If you have never participated in a union election before and are fed up with business as usual and tired of the good ol’ boy network, I urge you to join me and elect a Independent Candidate with real rank-and-file values who understands your issues, will fight for your rights, be held accountable and WORK FOR YOU!

I will be suspending all activities on the local157 blog and will focus my energies on my official campaign blog at

Please visit my official blog to learn more about my campaign to take back this union from leaders who betrayed our trust.

Thank You
