SWRCC Inland Empire Endorsements

Dear Fellow Carpenter,

The June 5 election holds important decisions for all of us to make. Every day elected officials make decisions about construction projects that can mean good jobs for Union Carpenters. If the wrong candidates are elected, then it can mean fewer and even no jobs for Union Carpenters, or jobs that pay less than working at a fast food restaurant. June 5 is your chance to support those candidates who support you and your family.

The recommendations here were based on participation by carpenters at the local level. I believe our endorsements, especially in local races, are stronger if our local members are involved in the endorsement decision.

Most of the election contests on your ballot are on this page. In some cases, your local representatives decided they didn’t have enough information to recommend a candidate or ballot measure. In others, either none of the candidates were acceptable or we had friends running against each other, therefore, no recommendations were made in those races and do not appear on this page.

Finally, the recommendations include candidates from both political parties. Carpenters need to support candidates, regardless of party, who will fight for us. The best way we can thank those fighting for us is to vote for them, either by mail or on June 5. If you have any questions about these endorsements, call your local Carpenter facility or go to the Southwest Carpenters website at www.swcarpenters.org. If you need to find your polling place,  go to www.voterstatus.sos.ca.gov.

Fraternally,
Randy Thornhill
Executive Secretary-Treasurer
Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters
