York – Labor unions and leaders whose memberships include thousands of working men and women throughout Pennsylvania’s Tenth Congressional District are today endorsing Eugene DePasquale for Congress.
United Steelworkers District 10, Teamsters Local 776, Bricklayers and Allied Craftsmen Local 5, IBEW 229, UFCW Local 1776 are joined by the presidents of the Harrisburg Region Central Labor Council and the York-Adams Central Labor Council in endorsing DePasquale.
“Eugene has a strong record of fighting for working class Pennsylvanians,” said Dave Gash, president of the Harrisburg Region Central Labor Council. “After seeing his success as Auditor General I know that he is the best person we can send to shake up Washington and get things back on track for working folks. And that’s why he has my full endorsement.”
”Eugene’s work on the Alternative Energy Investment Act shows that you can fight for good jobs and a cleaner environment at the same time,” said Tom Santone, president of the York-Adams Central Labor Council. “We need him fighting for these issues in Washington. He is the right person to beat Scott Perry in this election.”
“I am proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with the working men and women of our region and I am thankful to have their support,” said DePasquale. “With Labor Day Weekend here it is especially a good time to remember that unions advocate to provide people fair pay for fair work and safer working conditions while providing the training people need to be the best at what they do. Our roads, bridges, building, and so much more are safer for all of us when they have been built and maintained by well-trained workers.”
In addition to today’s endorsement, DePasquale has been endorsed state Treasurer Joe Torsella, 2018 10th C.D. Democratic nominee George Scott and more than40 local and county elected officials from across the district, including Harrisburg’s mayor, both Democratic state legislators, all three Democratic county commissioners, and all three Democratic Party chairs.
