The Teamsters Local 294 on Monday endorsed the re-election of Republican Rep. John Faso.

“Since taking office, Congressman Faso has been a dedicated supporter of efforts to guarantee solvency of the New York State Teamsters Conference Pension & Retirement Fund,” said John Bulgaro, the local’s president. “We thank him for his efforts and look forward to continue working with him to ensure our members’ retirement money is safe and accessible in the future.”

Faso is seeking a second term to his battleground Hudson Valley House district. He faces Democrat Antonio Delgado this fall.

“It is a privilege to work with Local 294 on issues important to its members and their families,” said Faso. “I’m pleased to have earned their support in this election. I will continue to fight for our commercial vehicle operators, who have been and will continue to be a linchpin in America’s economic engine.”
