It is a great honor to receive any endorsement in a political campaign but in this case doubly so.
Today I received the endorsement of Teamsters local #783 for my State House District 28 race. As a proud Union member for most of my life I have always understood the fight for fairness and equality in the workplace. I have stood alongside labor in many issues and have railed against the common problems we all share.
Therefore to receive an endorsement from labor recognizing my efforts as someone who walks alongside, and not ahead, is a very humbling experience.
I will continue to work towards equality in the workplace, fairness, and towards creating an economy that provides jobs that pay fair living wages so we all can become successful. Though this is a great honor to be recognized by labor it is only the beginning.
This is the beginning of a long road ahead towards winning this primary and then the General election. The road will be rough but with the collective efforts of all of us we can reach the end successfully.
My sincerest thanks to the Teamsters at local #783 for their efforts in helping make this happen.
Together we can all achieve more than the mediocrity we have been forced to accept.
