"Eve's long history as a leader in the NYS teachers union and her family’s traditional labor activity makes Social Democrats USA proud to endorse her. We are confident she will do a great job in the Common Council as a community leader and as a working-class mom who knows what it’s like to pay a mortgage bill and raise children," says Michael Mottern, first vice chair for Social Democrats, USA.
