The New York City District Council of Carpenters is proud to endorse the below candidates for office in New York City. We are confident we can work with these candidates to bring union issues to the forefront and advocate for workers’ rights.


  1. Brandon Patterson, State Assembly District 64
  2. Yuh-Line Niou, State Assembly District 65
  3. Michael Blake, Congressional Representative NY-15

“I am proud to have the New York City & Vicinity District Council of Carpenters supporting my re-election,” stated Assemblywoman Yuh-Line Niou. “Together, we have fought for a living wage for working families and safer working conditions, and I will continue to work for reforms that will support my community – immigrants, small business owners, teachers, seniors and union workers – because together, we will make a stronger New York.”

“I’m proud to receive the endorsement of the New York District Council of Carpenters in my campaign for the Assembly,” stated Assembly Candidate Brandon Patterson. “Carpenters across the city work hard and they need support to ensure fair wages, good benefits, and safe work sites. I know that the quality of the work they do is unrivaled, and that it’s important that the men and women who help build the state have someone who’s got their back. When I’m elected, they’ll always have a fighter in Albany to ensure just that.”

“As a son of labor, I am thrilled to receive the endorsement of the New York City & Vicinity District Council of Carpenters to be the next Member of Congress for New York’s 15th district as the Carpenters recognize and support our #BelieveintheBx vision to create jobs and opportunities for all,” stated Assembly Member Michael Blake. “The union carpenters have been and continue to be great neighbors in The Bronx, and, I am confident that together we can bring jobs, apprenticeships, Justice and a better way of life for all Bronxites in the 15th Congressional District.”
