CUNY teacher union ranks Stringer as top choice for mayor followed by Morales

The City University of New York teachers’ union, the Professional Staff Congress, is supporting city Comptroller Scott Stringer in his bid to become New York’s next mayor. 

Union leadership announced its official endorsement on Friday after members of its Delegate Assembly voted Thursday night for a ranked-choice endorsement Stringer as their top choice for mayor followed by Dianne Morales. Members cited Stringer’s advocacy for a tuition-free CUNY as well as his “record of support for workers’ rights and progressive causes” as the reason for their support during his bid for mayor.
