By District Council 1707 AFSCME Executive Director Victoria Mitchell
District Council 1707 AFSCME congratulates Assemblyman Carl E. Heastie on his election as the Speaker of the New York State Assembly. While we are joining with the Assembly to not only applaud his selection but to also commend him for his consistent and solid work as the Chairman of the Assembly Labor Committee and his devotion to his constituents and his Bronx borough.
In past remarks before our members he spoke earnestly about his working class past and his own union affiliation with Day Care Employees Local 205. District Council 1707 looks forward to working with Speaker Heastie during the current legislative session and at sessions in years to come.
