Speaker Silver Statement on Re-Election of Mario Cilento as
President of NYS AFL-CIO

I congratulate Mario Cilento on his re-election as president of the New York State AFL-CIO. Mario has fought tirelessly on behalf of the labor movement, standing side by side with New York's hardworking men and women for more than 20 years. Proud union members have chosen a true advocate who understands the need to strengthen the middle class, can bring together the more than 2.5 million members of organized labor, and can lead the fight for a brighter economic future for our working families.
