According to the Plattsburgh Press-Republican, major unions in the city have divided their endorsements, with the police and the American Federation of State County Municipal Employees backing Calnon.

The Fire Department Union, meanwhile, is backing Rosenquest.

Kasprzak is widely credited with reducing Plattsburgh's budget deficit during his six years in office, though he also clashed repeatedly with unions.
