Jeff Mailman, candidate for City Council in the 4th district, has earned the critical endorsement of the Transport Workers Union, Local 100 in his bid for the Democratic nomination. This early endorsement is a strong indication of the momentum that continues to build around Mailman’s candidacy.
John Samuelsen, International President of the Transport Workers Union, said: “Jeff Mailman will be a strong advocate for hardworking transit workers by seeking new investment in the transportation system at this time of growing frustration for commuters. We can also count on him to make the safety of workers and the riding public a top priority. We strongly endorse Jeff Mailman for New York City Council.”
Jeff Mailman said: “I am honored to accept the endorsement of TWU Local 100 and to advocate on behalf of the 41,000 workers who operate and maintain the City’s transit system. Nearly everyone who lives, works and raises a family in District 4 depends on the hardworking members of TWU, and they deserve our respect and unfailing support as they keep New York moving.”

Prior to his work at the City Council, Jeff fought for consumer protections while working at the New York State Attorney General’s office.
