As W.F.P. Votes to Endorse Thompson, Teachers Abstain, 32BJ Says No, ACORN Says Yes

The Working Families Party mayor-endorsement vote last night went to Bill Thompson. According to an interested reader, here’s the vote total:
75-Thompson
34-No endorsement
9- Abstain
1- No show
To get the endorsement, Thompson needed to have two-thirds of the yes/no votes cast. That means out of the 109 eligible votes last night, Thompson needed to get 72. So it was close.
Despite that, this is the first endorsement that both Bloomberg and Thompson have sought that went to Thompson.
The vote totals above are a weighted vote of the W.F.P.’s coordinating committee, which is made up some of the city’s most powerful unions.
