Earlier this month, Teamsters Local 456 President Louis A. Picani announced the organization’s proud endorsement of Kevin Byrne for re-election to serve the people of New York’s 94th Assembly District.


Reflecting on the endorsement Assemblyman Byrne said, “I’m truly honored to receive this endorsement. We were all shocked when less than two weeks into my first term we learned about the Governor’s backroom deal to close Indian Point. Since then, I have been a constant advocate to ensure the State does everything possible to protect the workers who made their living at that plant, so that those who want to continue to live, work and raise their families here in New York will have the opportunity to do just that. I thank Louis Picani, his leadership team, and his membership for their endorsement and support in the upcoming election.”


President Picani noted that “Kevin has always stood up for concerns of working men and women in his district and throughout New York State.”
