SWRCC New Mexico 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 below 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. We also are still meeting with a few candidates. If any additional recommendations are made, we will inform you.

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. You can vote early by voting at your county clerk’s office until June 2. You can also request an absentee ballot from your county clerk’s office until June 1 and it must be returned to the clerk’s office no later than 7:00 pm on June 5 or vote in person on June 5 at your polling place. For further information on early voting and absentee voting, go to http://www.sos.state.nm.us/Voter_Information/ Absentee_and_Early_Voting.aspx. 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 https://voterportal.servis. sos.state.nm.us/WhereToVote.aspx.
