UFT endorses Scott Stringer for New York City mayor

It’s official: the delegate assembly for the city’s powerful teacher union, the United Federation of Teachers, voted Monday to endorse Scott Stringer for New York City mayor. 

The vote was part of a four-month UFT vetting process by union members of all the candidates running for the city’s 2021 elections. Out of the 40 candidates running for mayor, the union chose 12 to ask in-depth questions on education policy during five mayoral town halls.
