“We are proud to endorse Buffy Wicks for State Assembly District 15,” said Rob Stoker, Political and Public Relations Director of Northern California Sheet Metal Workers’ Local 104. “We’re confident that she will hit the ground running in Sacramento.
Buffy will tackle the housing crisis head-on, striking a balance that protects the community, environment and our workers while creating much needed building trades apprenticeship opportunities.”
“I’m honored to have the endorsement of Northern California Sheet Metal Workers’ Local 104,” said Assembly District 15 candidate Buffy Wicks. “I’ve fought for workers’ rights throughout my career, from the grassroots level to the White House. Unions have long been steadfast champions of safer workplaces, parental leave, better health care, job security, and equal pay. I look forward to working with Sheet Metal Workers’ Local 104 on the campaign trail and in office to address our biggest challenges and make our shared priorities for workers’ rights a reality.”

Governor Gavin Newsom, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, Richmond Mayor Tom Butt, El Cerrito Mayor Gabe Quinto, Emeryville Mayor John Bauters, Piedmont Vice Mayor Teddy King, and many other community leaders across the district.
