WASHINGTON — 

AFSCME President Lee Saunders issued the following statement about New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s campaign for the presidency:

“I want to commend Mayor de Blasio for running a campaign that was about putting working people first by elevating the issues that are important to working families in New York and across the country. Enacting universal pre-K, paid sick days for employees and a bold plan to protect the environment while creating good jobs are all things New Yorkers can be proud of. We look forward to working with Mayor de Blasio to find new ways to win for all working families.”
