Working Families Endorses Craig Johnson for State Senate

The Working Families Party is proud to endorse Nassau County Legislator Craig Johnson for State Senate in the 7th Senate District special election on February 6th.

After interviewing both Craig Johnson and Maureen O'Connell, Nassau WFP Chapter members voted overwhelmingly to endorse Craig Johnson. Larry DeAngelis, co-chair of the Working Families Nassau Chapter, had this to say:
"Working families in Nassau County need Craig Johnson in the State Senate to reform Albany, reduce property taxes for working and middle-class families and address pressing needs like better schools and affordable housing. In every election, we interview the candidates and evaluate their positions on the issues that matter most to working families. In this race, we're convinced that Craig Johnson is the best candidate for working families on Long Island."
The Working Families Party will send over 50 organizers into the field to knock on the doors of likely voters every night from now until February 6. Lisa Tyson, another leader of the Working Families Nassau County chapter, lays down the challenge:
"We’re going all out for Craig Johnson in the field, where this campaign will be won."
You can help!
Craig Johnson was raised in Port Washington and attended public schools in the neighborhood. He earned his BA, magna cum laude, from Amherst College and received his Juris Doctor degree, cum laude, from St. John's University School of Law. He lives in Port Washington with his wife Liz, also an attorney, and sons Benjamin and Samuel and is Of Counsel at Jaspan Schlesinger Hoffman LLP in Garden City. Prior to his association with Jaspan Schlesinger, Craig was an associate at Reisman Peirez & Reisman, LLP and at the law firm of Willkie Farr & Gallagher prior to that.

isn't this the guy that was going to call for cuts to csea members when he ran for county legislator?

isn't this the guy who thinks that coming to the left, means moving to the center?

has this guy ever stuck his neck out to advance the agenda of the party?
