The labor group that represents State Supreme Court officers on Thursday endorsed Independent Democratic Conference Leader Jeff Klein’s re-election.
“Senator Klein has constantly demonstrated his support of our members by cutting through Albany partisanship to enact meaningful legislation that benefits our members, their families and all New Yorkers,” said Patrick Cullen, the president of the New York State Supreme Court Officers Association.
Klein faces former city Councilman Oliver Koppell in a Democratic primary that was initially fueled in part by the IDC’s coalition with Senate Republicans. Klein and IDC have agreed to form a new coalition with the mainline Democratic conference after Election Day.
“I’m pleased to receive the endorsement of the New York State Supreme Court Officers, who keep our courtrooms safe and orderly each and everyday. I’m proud to be a voice for their hardworking members and all hardworking families across this state,” Klein said.
