NEWSPAPERS

Queens Chronicle

The Wave Weiner... is the “Energizer Bunny,” always on the go, always trying to ameliorate the impact of “Manhattan-based thinking” on the outer boroughs such as Queens. Has he always brought home the bacon for Rockaway? Not by a long shot, but he has always been in there swinging against the federal bureaucracy and, on the whole, has served Rockaway well.

UNIONS AND OTHER LABOR GROUPS

Uniformed Firefighters Association

Mechanics and Transporation Workers (District 15 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers)

Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union
"He stood up to Wal-Mart and helped stop that low-road, anti-worker retailer from opening in Rego Park, Queens. He has been steadfast in his support to bring a fair and decent contract to the workers at Duane Reade. No one will fight harder for the working men and women of New York City than Anthony Weiner."

CIVIC GROUPS

POLITICIANS

Representative Eliot Engel

StateAssemblymember William Colton.

State Assemblymember Michael Cusick

StateAssemblmember JeffreyDinowitz
"When the mayor turned his back on our community and tried to put a mammoth water filtration plant in Van Cortlandt Park, Anthony Weiner stood with us and fought back. He's standing with us in the fight to make sure meals-on-wheels works for our homebound seniors. He's standing with us in the fight to expand senior hours on our express buses.
