New York State United Teachers' Board of Directors is backing the statewide re-election bids of state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli and Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
The NYSUT board also issued early endorsements for state Sens. Tim Kennedy, D-Buffalo, and Toby Stavisky, D-Queens, along with Assemblyman Kevin Cahill, D-Kingston, and Jason Zove, a 26-year-old Commack resident who is challenging six-term incumbent Assemblyman Michael Fitzpatrick.
NYSUT will consider endorsements in other races at its regular endorsement conference beginning August 11.
