WFP Backs Shayne Gallo For Mayor

BREAKING NEWS : The Working Families Party endorsed Shayne Gallo for Mayor of the City of Kingston today. We hear Shayne Gallo won the endorsement by a pretty wide margin.

I am proud to announce that today my campaign received the endorsement of the Working Families Party. From its inception, my campaign has been a grass-roots effort to work to make sure that the economy works for everyone and where politicians are held accountable to working people. My vision as mayor is that all of us, no matter where we come from, can find a good job, get healthcare when we need it, afford a home, send our kids to good schools, and have a secure retirement. This endorsement is further proof  that I am the stronger candidate to win in November. I am honored to represent the Working Families Party for the office of Mayor.

Also endorsed in the City of Kingston:

Ulster County Legislature:

Jeanette Provanzano

Mike Madsen

Alderman-at-Large: James  Noble

Ward  2: Tom Hoffay

Ward 4: Shirley Whitlock

Ward 9: Mark Halwick

Any Insight as to why Jenn decided to go forth with this tonight rather than hold out? Why not announce them all?

Seems suspect.

Screw politics,,,

WFP always announces their endorsements prior to Democratic convention. This has nothing to do with Jen, it was a committee and Gallo won by a wide margin.

Contested examples: 2007 Jonathan Sennett walked into Democratic convention with WFP line

2008 Donaldson walked into Dem convention for Comptroller with WFP line.

Also all Kingston endorsements of WFP were released tonight.

No Madsen is in a primary with Donaldson.
