To Whom it May Concern,

As mayor of the city of Ithaca, I respect the right of our employees to join together and represent their common interests, and I expect the same from Cornell, our biggest employer. Fair labor and employment conditions for grad workers can only make both our city and Cornell stronger and more cohesive. For these reasons, I support Cornell Graduate Students United (CGSU) and I'm endorsing a "yes" vote in support of democracy and workers' rights next week.

Sincerely,
Svante Myrick, Mayor
