Katie Hobbs for Governor:
Local 1912 hosted a press conference for the Katie Hobbs for Governor campaign. During the press conference the Secretary of State and gubernatorial candidate presented her economic plan for Arizona. Local 1912 President, Fabian Sandez said, “Many of the in-demand and good-paying jobs in Arizona are accessible to those who are skilled in a trade, have a specialized program certificate, or have completed an apprenticeship program like ours. Instead of focusing on only one definition of success, Katie’s Affordable Arizona plan will help everyday Arizonans get back to work in good-paying jobs or help those already working to find better-paying opportunities.”
