Just received an email from the Hudson Valley Area Labor Federation announcing that state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman will be hosting an public forum at Marist College in Poughkeepsie to speak on a range of issues.
Topics will include environmental protection, labor rights, civil rights, health care and consumer fraud and protection, according to the email. Schneiderman, a Democrat running for re-election this year, will be there with senior staff to address those issues.
The email also says the forum is “in collaboration with” Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, another Democrat running for reelection this year.
Co-sponsors of the event include Ulster County Executive Mike Hein, Dutchess County Executive Marcus Molinaro, Beacon Mayor Randy Cosale and Kingston Mayor Shayne Gallo. State senators Greg Ball, Cecilia Tkaczyk, Bill Larkin and Terry Gipson and assemblymembers Didi Barrett, Kiernan Michael Lalor and Frank Skartados are also listed as sponsors.
Even though the email came from the AFL-CIO, it looks like this is an official event from the Attorney General’s Office, as the contact to RSVP is the office’s intergovernmental affairs office.
The forum is on June 9 at 6 p.m. at the Fusco Recital Hall at Marist College.
