“Governor Hochul has worked hard to get the construction industry moving again in New York State,” said Joe Byrne, Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters. “She has stood up for our members time and time again – protecting workers from wage theft, expanding the prevailing wage, and tax relief for the middle class.

“The New York City District Council of Carpenters and the North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters are proud to jointly support and endorse Governor Kathy Hochul for a full term,” said Joseph A.
