The support from the California Conference of Machinists adds to the growing support for Pilar’s campaign, which recently announced the endorsements of Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond, Treasurer Fiona Ma, Board of Equalization Member Malia Cohen, Senators Maria Elena Durazo and Connie Leyva, Assemblymembers Lorena Gonzalez and Alex Lee, CA Dem Party Vice Chair David Campos, Teamsters Joint Council 42, AFSCME 3299, National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW), United Steelworkers Local 675 (USW), and the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) TSA Local 1260.
"When we support candidates, we look for people who have a history of fighting for working families and delivering for their community. That's why we're proud to support Pilar for Assembly,” said Thomas J. Brandon, Secretary Treasurer, California Conference of Machinists. “We know that Pilar will always work to ensure her community has a voice in Sacramento, doing all she can on the issues that matter most -- healthcare, housing people can afford, good jobs, and a stable economy. We look forward to working with her."
