Senator Schumer Shows His Support: “I am proud to stand with Senator Joe Addabbo”

State Senator Joe Addabbo announced that he has received the endorsement of United States Senator Charles Schumer. Senator Addabbo, who represents the 15th Senate District, is running for reelection this November.

Senator Schumer said, “Especially during these difficult economic times, it is critical that our leaders fight for struggling New Yorkers. Joe’s hard work will bring thousands of jobs to the Queens community and boost our local business. I am proud to stand with Senator Joe Addabbo.”

The endorsement is particularly relevant because Senator Schumer once represented much of Senator Addabbo’s senate district as a Congressman.

Senator Addabbo said, “I am honored to have the support of Senator Schumer, who has worked tirelessly for the people of New York, and I look forward to continuing to work with him on issues that are important to working families.”
