CSEA President Danny Donohue Says Nixon Does Not Have the Experience Needed to be Governor
ALBANY, NY (08/10/2018) (readMedia)-- Civil Service Employees Association President Danny Donohue responded with the following statement to Democratic gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon's proposal that would enable public sector employees to strike without penalty:
"Public sector employees are the backbone of every state and local government across the country. They provide essential services every day that keep our communities safe and running smoothly. It is incredibly naïve for Cynthia Nixon to propose that all public sector workers be able to strike. Clearly, she does not have the experience needed to be governor of New York."
