State Sen. Darrel Aubertine accepted the endorsement of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 43 today and vowed to continue working for us to create and preserve jobs in Central and Northern New York.
“It is with great pleasure that we are throwing our support behind Darrel Aubertine,” said William C. Towsley, Business Manager of IBEW Local Union No. 43. “We need more representatives like Darrel in Albany. He is a man who is not afraid of getting his hands dirty. He stands up for his constituents and has built relationships based on trust that have helped him to accomplish so much for the people he represents. We believe he will be able to do much more in the years ahead.”
“IBEW Local 43 works hard to protect their members and I am proud that they recognize me as the person who works just as hard in Albany for all working men and women,” Darrel said. “This election is about our economy and I remain committed to working for us to bring in new jobs, including those that a fourth nuclear facility would create. We also need to be vigilant to preserve the jobs we have and make sure that we are looking out for our working men and women.”
Local 43 represents more than 1,200 skilled electric laborers throughout Central New York.
