Rochester, NY – Today, the Civil Service Employees Association (CSEA) endorsed Joe Morelle’s candidacy for the 25thCongressional District. CSEA represents over 300,000 active and retired, public and private sector employees, including approximately 45,000 members in Western Region 6 which serves Monroe County.


"We are pleased to announce this endorsement of Joe Morelle for Congress,” said Flo Tripi, Western Region President, CSEA. “Joe has been a good friend over his many years in public service. His experience and strong record of delivering results for our community make him a great choice to continue the legacy of Louise Slaughter."


“Donald Trump is rolling over the American worker in favor of advancing misguided policies that favor profit-driven special interests,” said Morelle. “In Congress, I will stand up and fight every day for better jobs, higher wages, and to build a future that works for the many, not just the wealthy few. I am so grateful to have the hardworking members of CSEA as partners in this important endeavor.”


Morelle, who currently serves as a state Assemblymember representing the towns of Brighton, Irondequoit and parts of the city of Rochester, has spent a lifetime in public service working to advance the best interests of his community. In the Assembly, Morelle has successfully fought for the passage of legislation to raise the minimum wage in New York State, establish paid family leave to ease the burden on our working families, improve access to healthcare for all people, bring millions of dollars in infrastructure improvements to our area, and increase workforce development training to ensure individuals have the skills and training they need to be successful.


Morelle has received over 20 endorsements, including every major trade and service union in New York State.
