DC 37's Interesting Endorsements
August 22nd, 2012

The city’s largest public employee union, DC 37, has released its slate of endorsements for the Sept. 13 primary. And, boy, are there are some interesting ones.

Perhaps most noteworthy is their endorsements of Assemblyman William Boyland, who is facing an indictment for federal bribery charges for allegedly soliciting $25,000 from an undercover FBI agent to cover legal expenses from his previous indictment.

Boyland is also being investigated for falsifying travel records for reimbursement, and has earned one of the least admirable records in the legislature. Boyland had one of the worst attendance records of any legislator last year. He introduced no bills in 2011, and only sponsored three this year.

DC 37 is also endorsing Assembylwoman Naomi Rivera, who has recently come under fire for allegedly giving cushy government jobs to her ex-lovers.

“The DC 37 Executive Board endorsed this list of very qualified candidates, following a recommendation by the DC 37 Screening Committee, because of their proven record in support of the issues important to the men and women we represent who work so hard to serve New York,” said DC 37 Executive Director Lillian Roberts. “We firmly believe that these candidates will best represent the interests of the labor community of our city and our state. Our endorsement brings with it a pledge to work diligently on their behalf with our powerful, sophisticated field operations to get out the vote. We have a proven record of successfully supporting our endorsed candidates”.

A spokesman for DC 37 said they would respond to my inquiries about Boyland’s qualifications “as soon as possible.”

Here is the full list of primary endorsements:

    Lillian Roberts is a Person-In-Need-Of-Supervision. Her political preferences for this year make me doubt her ability to reason.
