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.

With all of the partisan political struggles that get media attention every day, it is important to remember that America and the world face constant critical and possibly existential threats.

Even more than Islamist terrorism, there is the severe threat of cyber attacks from Russia, Iran, China and international criminal enterprises. At the annual "Worldwide Threats" hearing, the leaders of America's Intelligence Community emphasized the necessity of protecting our critical defense, intelligence and industrial critical infrastructure from governmental and non-state hackers. As we saw in the 2016 elections there are the propaganda and surreptitious attacks on our democratic process.

Of course threats from a nuclear armed North Korea, a potential nuclear armed Iran, an expansion China and a resurgent Russia remain as do the ever deadly Islamist terrorist threats from ISIS, Al Qaeda and their offshoots and splinter groups.

We must face the reality that we live in an extremely dangerous world which is why it is vital that the Trump Administration continue to rebuild our military and we make sure that our intelligence agencies receive all the funding and all the moral support they need and deserve to protect Americans at home and American interests around the world. God Bless America!!
