Borough Park, NY - Union Backs Felder Opponent
Borough Park, NY - Kevin Parker, the state senator from Brooklyn facing two well-established primary challengers, just got the endorsement of the United Food and Commercial Workers, Local 1500.
According to a statement from campaign spokesperson Ronnie Sykes, the union’s decision wasn’t a close one: “The union endorsed Senator Parker without conducting an interview. The decision was made based on the Senator’s strong history of support for working families.”
Running against Parker are term-limited City Council members Kendall Stewart and Simcha Felder, who has been on the wrong end of a preemptively exclusive screening process before.
