The Lane County Labor Chapter has released its endorsements of local candidates for the May primary election. Kenny Ascheri, LCCEF’s Vice President of Labor Relations, attends LCLC meetings and participated in all but one of the interviews for the endorsed candidates. After looking at the candidates’ websites and holding a discussion, our EC voted today to endorse this list as well. These candidates are all pro-labor, some of them very strongly so, and we felt that, even though ballots are out and some have already voted, it would still be of value to our membership to have that connection should these candidates win. In these uncertain times, the more our local politicians are connected with us, the better things can be. If you are registered, please vote. And please consider these endorsements if these candidates are on your ballot.
