The Metropolitan Washington Council AFL-CIO announced early this morning that they are endorsing me as their sole candidate for the at-large council race. The Labor Council includes 200 affiliated unions representing 150,000 area union members. I couldn't be prouder to accept this endorsement, and the incredible volunteer energy and resources that come with it.
I have stood with working families, and once again working families are standing with me.
I have worked side-by-side with members of these unions, advocating for affordable housing, fair wages, and the rights of workers to earn sick days, and I am looking forward to working side by side with them on the council to expand opportunities for all D.C. residents and workers to thrive.
Just a reminder that I will be joining DC for Democracy, DC Vote, statehood champion Josh Burch, and many other committed residents to show the Senate the strength of our movement for full citizenship rights. 3:00 pm TODAY
Dirksen Senate Office Building
I hope to see you there!
