“We are proud to endorse Mayor Fulop and his Slate in this upcoming Election,” stated Alphonse Rispoli, Jr., president of Joint Council 73. “Mayor Fulop has always answered our calls and has always supported Joint Council 73 and our affiliate locals. The Joint Council 73 Executive Board will be working with our International Brotherhood Teamsters Political Coordinators and our affiliate locals to GET OUT THE VOTE.”
