*** Alex Padilla has been endorsed for Secretary of State by the CDP ***
I am thrilled to share that I have received the endorsement of the California Labor Federation!
This is what California Labor Federation Executive Secretary-Treasurer Art Pulaski has to say.
Raised in a union household, Alex Padilla has fought for the rights of working families at all levels of government. As Secretary of State, Alex Padilla is working to make it easier for working Californians to register and vote so that their voices are heard in the political process. At a time when voting rights, basic worker protections and the right to stand together in a union on the job are under attack, the California Labor Federation stands with Alex Padilla.
Let me tell you why this endorsement is personal.
I was raised in a union household. Growing up, the restaurant my father worked in was organized by H.E.R.E. Local 11. I saw first-hand how a good contract ensured his good wages and benefits. More importantly, those wages and benefits afforded my parents the dignity of providing for our family and paying the mortgage.
I’m honored and thankful for the California Labor Federation’s recognition of the work I’m doing to register more voters and increase voter participation.
