YONKERS, N.Y. -- The Yonkers Federation of Teachers announced Friday that it has endorsed New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson in his bid to become Westchester county executive.

“The Yonkers Federation of Teachers strongly endorses Noam Bramson for Westchester County Executive,"  Pat Puleo, president of the union said in a statement. "During difficult budgetary times, Noam Bramson has demonstrated a keen ability to successfully collaborate with working men and women to build a safer, more fiscally sound community. Our children will benefit from his deep understanding of family needs balanced with strong fiscal integrity.”

Bramson, a Democrat, said this endorsement means a great deal to him personally and for his campaign.

"I am honored to receive the support of educators who are so hard at work for our children," said Bramson. "As a graduate of Westchester public schools and a parent of two kids in Westchester public schools, this endorsement is especially meaningful to me. I know the impact a teacher can have on his or her students' lives, and I'll work with the YFT to ensure all our children get a great education."
