Looks like they're coming out of the woodwork to support Mayor Bloomberg.

The New York City District Council of Carpenters, which has over 25,000 members, announced this morning that it is endorsing Bloomberg for re-election this November.

"Mayor Bloomberg has the skill and experience to lead New York City through difficult times," Michael Forde, the union's Executive Secretary Treasurer said in a statement.

"Over the last four years, Mayor Bloomberg has been a fighter in our corner. He has made job creation ... a priority issue, and because of that, members of the carpenters' union -- and their families -- have been able to weather this difficult economy far better than our counterparts in other parts of the country."

I would ask that if you would like to leave a comment that you think of Local 157 Blogspot as your online meeting hall and that you wouldn’t say anything on this site that you wouldn’t, say at a union meeting. Constructive criticism is welcome, as we all benefit from such advice. Obnoxious comments are not welcome.
