Elections have big impacts on organized labor. This year's election is as important as ever. Organized Labor is under attacks that we haven't seen since the 1960's. The candidates that are listed on our endorsements have given a pledge, or have shown via their voting record that we can rely on them to make sure worker's voices are heard. Please consider supporting our friends at the voting booth.
Below we've highlighted some key race endorsements, and some new candidates that we've not endorsed in previous years. We hope this helps you understand the reason that certain candidates or issues get the endorsement of the Carpenters Union.
Lisa Sobecki is running for Lucas County Commissioner and is no stranger to our endorsement list. Lisa has been a strong friend of the Carpenters Union and our members. She'll support our key issues.
Both Michele Grim and Elgin Rogers are new to statewide office races, but both have a proven history of supporting some of our key issues. Michele Grim is currently serving on Toledo City Council and Elgin Rogers is currently serving as the assistant of our good friend Pete Gerken, one of the three Lucas County Commissioners.
There are several candidates we haven't listed a bio on, this is not because of a lack of reason, it's because they've been long term, proven, friends and have our continued support. If you would like additional information on any of our previously and continued endorsed candidates please contact the union hall.
