This came over the transom from Councilman Jordan Brandman’s campaign:
Those of you who have been with me from the beginning know that campaigns are long, tough fights — as they should be. But the best days are when you see your friends standing next to you. Yesterday was one of those days.
The Orange County Labor Federation has endorsed our campaign for Council District 3!
The Orange County Labor Federation consists of more than 90 local unions that collectively represent more than 200,000 working men and women throughout Orange County. I’m humbled by the Federation’s support of our campaign because I know the moral weight it carries. For the last four years, I’ve worked tirelessly to improve working conditions and create opportunities for Anaheim’s working families. They are our neighbors and friends, and when they call on their elected officials to respect the dignity of honest work and their human rights, that’s just the right thing to do.
That’s why I’m proud of my record fighting for working families. In the last four years, I’ve worked to:
- Enact four project labor agreements that together will create more than 11,000 highly-skilled union jobs, as well as tens of thousands more in related roles.
- Called for the consideration of restoring more than 20 park employee positions the city cut in the depths of the Great Recession.
- Funded a new fire station, hired more firefighters and police officers, and cut emergency response times.
- Built two new parks, increased library hours, and expanded youth programming.
Will you join the Orange County Labor Federation, Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez, Assemblyman Tom Daly, and me in building the Anaheim our working residents in District 3 need?
