More Endorsements In Legislative Races

Our union has continued to interview candidates for the Legislature, and some additional endorsements have been made, although it hasn't always been easy. We've had interview sessions where members have met with all the candidates and then decided not to support anyone at this time. In other instances, endorsements have only been agreed to after lengthy discussion. It's a strange year.

The new endorsements added since my last update are as follows:

3rd LD House Pos 1: Andy Billig

6th LD Senate: Chris Marr

31st LD House Pos 1: Peggy Levesque

34th LD House Pos 2: Joe Fitzgibbon

40th LD House Pos 1: Tom Pasma

46th LD House Pos 1: David Frockt

In addition, our long-term warm relationships with Sen. Karen Keiser, 33rd LD, and Sen. Jeanne Kohl-Welles, 36th LD, were affirmed when local presidents voted to endorse both.

We will continue to meet with candidates over the Summer. There are almost two dozen races we'll consider over the next few weeks. We'll try to keep you posted as we go. -- Dennis
