“We look forward to establishing a strong partnership with Steven Fulop and the entire City Council to work towards the enhancement of academic excellence, community outreach, and a stronger, more vibrant urban community,” said William Calathes, president of the local, which represents 900 members.
Fulop Campaign spokesman Bruno Tedeschi noted that the AFT’s backing is the latest in a string of high-profile endorsements Fulop has received from organized labor.
