Understanding technology is a must and Council Member Ben Kallos actually laid cable supporting telecommunications infrastructure for tens of thousands of users on the SUNY Albany campus. Ben Kallos has never been afraid to stand up to anyone and do the work to win. Kallos made sure he joined us at every opportunity in support of our contract negotiations with Verizon on behalf of workers and customers including rallies, calling the CEO personally, and even holding them accountable at the Public Service Commission. As the next Manhattan Borough President with a vote on the Franchise and Concession Review Committee he will be a strong voice for our workers and consumer protection,” said Keith Purce, President of Communications Workers of America Local 1101.
