Westchester-Putnam Working Families Party Announces Support For Anthony Nicodemo for New York State Assembly

Today, the Westchester-Putnam chapter of the Working Families Party announced that they are supporting Anthony Nicodemo in his campaign for State Assembly in the 90th District.

“Anthony embodies all the values of the Working Families Party and we are proud to support his candidacy for state assembly. As a union president and advocate for marginalized communities we know that Anthony will stand up for the interests of the Working Families Party.” said Pat Welsh, WFP Westchester Putnam Chair.

“The Working Families Party embraces the value of true progressivism. Their support is a strong rebuke of establishment politics in Yonkers. As a true progressive I am honored to receive their vote of confidence for the 90th Assembly District race.”
This is the third political organization that has voiced support for the campaign. Earlier this month Nicodemo was endorsed by Run for Something and the Lower Hudson Valley Progressive Action Network. He has also received designation from Moms Demand Action.
“As we continue to run a grassroots campaign, we plan on working together across party lines to create a better Yonkers for all. Investing in our schools, rooting out government corruption, making it easier for people to vote and protecting human rights are all paramount. I sincerely thank the Working Families Party for standing with me to make New York Fair Again.”
