Local 21 Recommendations for the June 7, 2016 Election
In addition to the California Presidential Primary, there are many local reasons to go to the polls and vote. Who is elected to public office and which ballot measures win or lose has a direct impact on our jobs and our ability to provide the public with the top-quality services they need.
Below you will find the official endorsement recommendations of Professional and Technical Engineers Local 21. The endorsement process is democratic, nonpartisan and member-driven. You can find our procedures and criteria here http://www.ifpte21.org/content/policies
Help Local 21 pack a punch in June by volunteering to walk door to door or make phone calls to voters. You can also donate to the Fund for Political Action (COPE). Here is the link.
You can find additional endorsements at the California Labor Federation, San Francisco, South Bay, Alameda, Contra Costa and other local Labor Councils.
If you have any questions or want to volunteer please contact Rachel Richman, Policy and Political Director at email@example.com.
