Oregon AFL-CIO Makes Early Endorsements in Select Races
The Oregon AFL-CIO Committee on Political Education (COPE), representing over 225,000 workers across all sectors of Oregon’s economy and from every corner of the state, gathered today to discuss endorsements in various races.
Citing the importance of supporting candidates who will not just vote for, but who will advocate for issues that affect working people and help rebuild the middle class in Oregon, the COPE voted to endorse Jennifer Williamson for House District 36. Oregon AFL-CIO President Tom Chamberlain said, “Middle class Oregonian’s in HD 36 need a strong advocate in Salem – someone who isn’t afraid to stand up for their beliefs or stand up to corporate interests. Jennifer has a solid labor background and has proven herself an advocate for working people. We are proud to support her.”
