The Building and Construction Trades Council of Alameda County, representing tens of thousands of local members, announced their endorsement of Buffy Wicks today to serve as the next California Assemblymember for District 15.
“We are proud to endorse Buffy Wicks for State Assembly District 15,” said Andreas Culver, Secretary-Treasurer of the Building and Construction Trades Council of Alameda County. “She has the skills, experience, and drive that it will take to forge alliances and push legislation in Sacramento that expands workers rights, confronts our housing crisis, and creates new building trade job programs. She is undoubtedly the best choice to represent working families in AD15.”
“I’m thrilled to have the endorsement of Building and Construction Trades Council of Alameda County,” said Assembly District 15 candidate Buffy Wicks. “We need strong unions now more than ever to fight for the issues that matter most to California’s workers — namely, living wages, better healthcare, and safer workplaces. I look forward to working closely with Building and Construction Trades Council of Alameda County to make sure that robust union leadership is not just California’s legacy but also its enduring future.
