Johnson and Weprin rank 1-2 among first responder unions’ picks for NYC comptroller

Two unions representing the city’s emergency medical technicians and paramedics endorsed City Council Speaker Corey Johnson and Queens Assemblyman David Weprin as their top two picks in the race to become New York City’s next comptroller.

The FDNY EMS Local 2507 and the Uniformed Emergency Medical Services Officers Association Local 3621, which represent a combined 4,750 first responders across the five boroughs, want their members to rank Johnson first and Weprin second on their ranked choice ballots in the June 22 Democratic primary.
