Candidate Endorsements

NYCDCC City Council Endorsements

In advance of a pivotal election year for New York City, the New York City & Vicinity District Council of Carpenters, a 20,000-member strong carpenters union, today announced its first slate of endorsements for nine candidates in key City Council races. The candidates represent a diverse set of ideologies that embody the union’s values and goals to protect the working class.

This year’s endorsements were a part of a bold union-wide initiative called Carpenters RISE that empowers membership to become directly involved in the political process in their communities and beyond. Each candidate participated in a rigorous member-led endorsement process, which included union members representing each candidate’s district.

The following are the first slate of endorsements from the New York City District Council of Carpenters:

Candidate District
Carlina Rivera Council District 2
Keith Powers Council District 4
Eric Dinowitz Council District 11
Ischia Bravo Council District 15
Francisco Moya Council District 21
Adrienne Adams Council District 28
Sandy Nurse Council District 37
Justin Brannan Council District 43
Farah Louis Council District 45


City Council Candidate Endorsement Questionnaire

With the majority of City Council Members term limited, the 2021 elections will bring an exciting sea change of leadership to City Hall. The New York City District Council of Carpenters invites all candidates interested in seeking an endorsement from the NYCDCC to fill out the following questionnaire. This questionnaire is the first step of our formal endorsement process and will give candidates an opportunity to tell us where they stand on our key issues for this election.

We will be in touch to schedule screening interviews, which will occur throughout January, following the deadline. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Megan Wylie at
