State's CSEA union has first new president in 25 years


The union that represents public employees in New York State has a new president for the first time in more than 25 years.
Mary E. Sullivan was sworn in as president of the Civil Service Employees Association on Friday. She replaces Danny Donohue, who retired during his seventh elected term.

Sullivan will serve out the remainder of Donohue's term, which expires on Feb. 29.

CSEA represents state, county, municipal and school district workers as well as private sector employees and has about 300,000 members.

Sullivan is the union's former executive vice president. She has been a union activist for more than 35 years and started her public career as an employee of the Herkimer County Department of Social Services.
