Teamsters 856 members volunteered their time and efforts to get out the vote for State Senate District 7 Candidate Susan Bonilla this month. A special election was held on March 17 to fill the vacancy left by Mark DeSaulnier, who was elected to Congress. Bonilla garnered enough support to prompt a run off election in May against anti-labor candidate Steve Glazer.
Glazer has previously called for legislation that would severely restrict the rights of working people. In contrast, Bonilla had a 100% labor voting record in the the last legislative session as an Assemblymember. It’s critical that every Teamster in the district casts their vote for the candidate who supports working people — Susan Bonilla.
Those who vote by mail will begin receive their ballots after April 20, and the election will be held on May 19.
Join us for Teamsters phonebanking at the Contra Costa Central Labor Council, (1333 Pine Street, Martinez) starting at 5 p.m., April 16.
