Influential NYC unions throw support behind Adrienne Adams in race for City Council speaker

City Council Speaker Adrienne Adams

Several of the city’s most influential unions threw their support to City Councilwoman Adrienne Adams a day after she declared victory in the race for City Council speaker.

City Councilman Francisco Moya also claimed Dec. 15 that he had enough votes to capture the city’s second-most powerful position, but the latest endorsements may have tipped the scales to Adams.
