Brown endorsed by Teamsters

TROY – Incumbent At-Large City Councilman John Brown has been endorsed by one of the area’s largest unions in his bid for re-election.

Brown, a Democrat, was recently endorsed by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 294, which represents approximately 3,500 households across the region.

“The campaign is picking up a great deal of momentum and we are very happy to have broad, energized support,” said Brown. “Having such a large and influential union like the Teamsters is going to help the campaign to finish strong in November.”

John Bulgaro, president of the IBT, said that Brown was exactly the type of leader that is needed in government today.

“With John Brown working on their behalf the people of Troy should look forward to great things,” said Bulgaro.

“Working families in Troy are struggling in a difficult economy so I will continue to fight for keeping taxes low and push for the city to do more with less,” said Brown. “We need dedicated individuals who will put the interest of residents first and I hope to continue to do that for two more years.”

Brown has also received support from the Bricklayers and Allied Craft-workers Local 2, Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1321, the Greater Capital Region Building Trades Council, and the Troy Area Labor Council.
