1199SEIU on NY-03 Results

February 14, 2024

Statement of 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East on the results of the special election in New York’s 3rd Congressional District:

"This is a major win for the working families of Nassau and Queens who sent a strong message that they want a problem-solving approach to the issues that really matter to New Yorkers—good jobs, quality healthcare, and safe communities. We are so proud of 1199SEIU members’ effort to carry this message to voters of NY-03 alongside our coalition partners in Battleground NY—the largest grassroots field campaign in modern New York history.

Hundreds of 1199SEIU healthcare workers hit the doors in recent weeks and voters told us, over and over again: they are disgusted by the divisive rhetoric targeting our neighbors and want leaders who offer real solutions. Tonight’s results demonstrate just that. Congratulations to Congressman-Elect Suozzi."
