Congressman King Works With Local Unions

Long Island's Building and Construction Trades Unions are a vital and necessary part of the Long Island economy. The members of these unions and their families are outstanding members of our communities and neighborhoods. I have always worked closely with these unions -- the members and the leaders -- and their support has meant a great deal to me. Two very good friends over the years have been John Duffy, Business Manager of Operating Engineers Local 138 and Pete Zarcone, Executive Board Member of Laborers Local 66. I look forward to continuing my cooperation with the Building Trades as construction goes forward on Long Island and we rebuild and expand our infrastructure.

In another wave of police shootings, six police officers were shot last night in Pennsylvania and Florida. Both officers in the Florida shooting have died from their wounds. These latest shootings add to the upsurge in violence against the men and women in blue which has seen a 60% increase in gun murders of police officers in just the past 18 months.

These officers are the people who put their lives on the line for us every day. All too often they are maliciously attacked by liberal rags such as the New York Times and too many politically correct politicians. But these cops continue to do their job no matter what. They deserve the full support, gratitude and thanks of all good people. Blue Lives Do Matter!
