“The working people of the North Country
need a fighter in the Assembly.”

122nd Assembly District candidate Brian McGrath (D, I) today announced the backing of a broad coalition of support from organized labor.

“My campaign has been about cutting taxes, reforming government and creating jobs. Keeping the good jobs we have here, and creating a business climate that will invite job growth. I’m honored to have overwhelming support from the labor community in our shared fight to revitalize the North Country economy,” said McGrath.

“The social and economic problems facing our state and nation require strong leadership on the part of our elected representatives and we feel that you will be a strong advocate for the needs of all working men and women throughout the State of New York. We offer you best wishes in your campaign and the support of the members of the New York State AFL-CIO affiliates in your district,” wrote New York State AFL-CIO President, Denis M. Hughes in an endorsement letter to McGrath.

“Brian McGrath has a realistic plan create and keep good jobs in the North Country. He understands the needs of working people, and he'll fight to create opportunities so that our children aren’t forced to leave their families and communities to find work," said Jerry Dennis, President, SEIU Local 200United.

“We don’t need old guard politicians just talking about our problems. We need bright new leaders like Brian McGrath, one of Lowville’s finest, to provide innovative solutions to stop jobs from leaving our area and to work with businesses nationwide to create new jobs here,” said Roger J. Turck, President, USW Local 1988 in Lowville.
