New York, NY - Dan Goldman, Democratic nominee for Congress in NY-10, was today endorsed by 1199SEIU, the largest union in New York and the largest healthcare worker union in the nation.
1199SEIU Downstate Political Director Dell Smitherman said, “1199SEIU is proud to endorse Dan Goldman for Congress in New York’s 10th District. We know that Dan will be a steadfast ally in the fight to protect our Democracy and realize a nation that works for working people - one that guarantees fairness, security and dignity for all.”
“The hardworking healthcare workers represented by 1199SEIU have been on the frontlines of our fight against the COVID-19 pandemic for the past two years and we all owe them a debt of gratitude,” Dan Goldman said. “I am incredibly honored to receive their vote of confidence and look forward to standing with them in the fight for economic justice and quality healthcare for all.”
1199SEIU is the largest union in New York and the largest healthcare worker union in the nation, representing over 200,000 nurses and healthcare workers in New York City, more than 300,000 members in New York State, and over 400,000 total members along the East Coast.
The nurses and healthcare workers of 1199SEIU work in hospitals, nursing homes, homecare programs, clinics and pharmacies, and are some of the most politically active residents in New York.
Dan Goldman and his wife, Corinne, live in lower Manhattan where they are raising their five children. In 2019, Dan Goldman served as lead counsel for the impeachment investigation of President Donald J. Trump for abusing his office for his personal interest regarding Ukraine. In that role, Goldman led depositions and questioned witnesses in public hearings, and testified before the House Judiciary Committee.
Prior to that, Goldman served for a decade as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of New York working with Preet Bharara. In that role, he held powerful actors accountable and made our city safer. He took on some of the office’s biggest and most consequential cases: prosecuting violent criminals and gun trafficking, mafia bosses and Russian organized crime, and landmark insider trading and major corporate fraud cases. In law school, Goldman contributed to Michelle Alexander’s seminal book, The New Jim Crow, which addressed the inequalities in our criminal justice system.
