Fahey Wins Support of Hardworking Western New Yorkers
Fahey Wins Support of Hardworking Western New Yorkers

Western New York working families are rallying around Chris Fahey, candidate for the vacant 145th New York Assembly seat. 

“The people of Western New York have a work ethic like none other and they demand and deserve representation with the same level of energy and commitment,” said Chris Fahey.   “Too often politicians go to Albany and the primary focus becomes their own selfish job retention.    Instead this community needs a leader willing and ready to put in the hard work and fight desperately needed to create quality jobs that can support working families and advance opportunities to keep our talented children here after college.” 

Fahey is the only candidate with a plan to put Western New Yorkers to work.  Features of the Fahey plan include fighting for Western New York’s fair share of infrastructure investments that support jobs in the construction, supply and engineering fields as well as protecting our medical institutions, including those along the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, which have great potential for job growth among researchers and health care providers. 

Fahey has been walking door to door for months to hear from and earn the support of residents in neighborhoods across Buffalo, Lackawanna, West Seneca and Orchard Park.  He also opposes pay raises for Albany legislators, insisting instead that lawmakers should be focusing on the jobs of New York residents. 

Fahey has already won the backing of the following teams of Western New York workers with additional endorsements pending:

  • International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE) Local 17
  • International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 97
  • American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) Local 1095
  •  AFSCME Local 930
  • Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen
  • Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 1342
  • Bricklayers & Allied Craftworkers Local No. 3 NY
  • International Union of Elevator Constructors Local 14
  • New York State Troopers' Police Benevolent Association
  • Buffalo Teachers' Federation
  • Ironworkers Local 6
  • Painters District Council 4
  • Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters
  • United Auto Workers (UAW), Region 9
  • Communications Workers of America (CWA)
  • Laborers, Local 210
  • Buffalo Building and Construction Trades Council

A special election, to fill the seat formerly held by Mark Schroeder who was recently elected as Buffalo Comptroller, will be held March 20, 2012.
