Yonkers City Councilman John Rubbo (District 4).

YONKERS, NY — September 2, 2019 — Today we celebrate the 125th anniversary of Labor Day. On June 28, 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed a law making the first Monday in September of each year a national holiday.

Although the true founder of Labor Day is unclear, what is clear is that the Central Labor Union adopted a Labor Day proposal and planned a demonstration and picnic on the first Labor Day.

Today, we celebrate the long history of hard working American workers. The struggles they endured and the successes that followed. Thanks to these hard-working Americans, we no longer have an average of a 12 hours a day, seven days a week work schedule.

We must not stop the fight for the middle class worker, and we must always work to improve the quality of life we enjoy in this great country of ours.

God bless the American worker today and every day. Enjoy your Labor Day with family and friends.

Warmest Regards,




Yonkers City Councilman John Rubbo (District 4)

    1. Post

      Will look into it. Also, despite Rubbo advising that he will become a Democrat, he has yet to ascribe his name as a Democrat. Perhaps he is having second thoughts. I am waiting for the appropriate documentation. I wonder what is taking so long. Maybe Mr. Rubbo had other pressing issues to attend. Perhaps the paper work will be completed this week. Kindly, Hezi

    2. Yes, Hezi, please do confirm if Mommy was hired and her title. Also, what is his brother’s title? Wonderful- boy Rubbo is learning fast how to ride the City Hall nepotism train!!

      Thank you!

  1. Heard this jokester wants to run for Mayor!!!! He’s got some inflated ego!!! What has he done as a Councilman? Voted for 2 tax increases, voted to extend term limits, got his brother a job, etc. Nothing to benefit the taxpayer, that’s for sure!!!

    You can fool some of the people some of the time (which Rubbo did in his first term), but not all of the people all of the time. Voters will see through this charade!

  2. A press release from Rubbo to remind us what Labor Day means…really?! You’re a fake Dem now so got to start spreading the union message. Ha!ha!

  3. I thought you’d be celebrating your enrollment in the Democratic Party !!
    I hope you intend on giving back the campaign contributions you received..
