CWA Endorses Josue Pierre for City Council

Social share icons


Josue Pierre was raised in Flatbush by a mother who was a longtime member of 1199SEIU and instilled the importance of unions in him. He attended public schools and then worked part-time while earning his undergraduate degree, so he understands the needs of working families. While working in the New York City Comptroller’s office, Josue has also been a community organizer and advocate, co-founding the Shirley Chisholm Democratic Club to help get Flatbush area residents registered to vote and engaged in the political process. He’s a leader in democracy.

Here's why CWA District 1 is endorsing Josue Pierre for District 40:

  • Stands with unions through and through. He comes from a union family and knows our fight.

  • Will fight for small business that make up our community and provide good jobs by expanding access to grants and loans to make sure out city thrives.

  • Passionate about education and will fight to ensure that all New Yorkers have access to quality education and resources needed to succeed.
