Please educate yourself on the current political issues facing our community and your Union.
The most important contribution one can make to their community is to vote in all elections.
Your Union does not advocate for any political party. We support those who support Labor.
Your voice at the ballot box is key for positive change and growth.
The following is a list of issues to watch here in Kern, Inyo, and Mono Counties.
1. Water Bond Issues ( Delta Tunnels)
2. Oil and Gas Discussions ( CRC Projects)
3. Education Bonds to Build schools ( Construction means jobs)
4. Tax Debates ( Proposition 1 Gas Tax created millions of dollars in projects to repair our infrastructure)
5. Marijuana Regulation ( Impact on City and County revenue)
Once a person becomes educated on the issues, one can vote to support the candidates who support the particular point of view.
The following candidates are those we recommend and support in their campaigns because they support Labor:
