NYSUT Endorses Tom Croci for NYS

Patchogue, NY – Senator Tom Croci on Friday proudly accepted the endorsement of New York State United Teachers (NYSUT), a 600,000-member teachers union in the state.

"I'm deeply honored to receive the endorsement of the educators and professionals of NYSUT," Senator Croci said. "Thank you for your support and for continuing to deliver a world-class education to the children of New York State."

During his tenure as a New York State senator, he vehemently fought to improve public schools and reduce pressure on local taxpayers in New York’s Third Senate District by helping to secure $1 billion in school support.

He also voted to permanently eliminate the Democrat-enacted Gap Elimination Adjustment (GEA) cuts. This ended the law’s devastating impact on state funding to public schools in communities throughout New York State.

"Candidates earning NYSUT’s endorsement this year have shown a willingness to listen to our members in public schools, colleges and hospitals," said NYSUT President Karen E. Magee in a press release. "They value their relationships with our more than 600,000 politically active and energized members and champion their interests."

NYSUT examined candidates' voting records and their ongoing relationships with union members in their home districts.
