Momentum for Scott Stringer Grows; CUNY Professors, Staff Endorse Comptroller as Top Choice for NYC Mayor
Using Ranked Choice Voting, Union Ranks Dianne Morales #2 for Mayor
New York—Last night (April 15), the 30,000-member Professional Staff Congress (PSC) announced that Scott Stringer is its top choice for New York City Mayor after a ranked-choice endorsement vote by the union’s Delegate Assembly. The faculty and staff union pointed to Stringer’s advocacy for a free and fully funded CUNY education and his record of support for workers’ rights and progressive causes.
Coming days after the current Comptroller was endorsed by the Working Families Party, the PSC endorsement shows growing momentum for Stringer’s campaign and a further consolidation of support for progressive mayoral candidates
PSC delegates voted to support public education leader and non-profit administrator Dianne Morales as their second-ranked candidate.
