As we all know this upcoming election is going to be very important. In addition to our usual races, we have the State Supreme Court election, which is decided in the primary. If you didn’t know, they are the ones that make the final decision on issues that are import to us as operating engineers, such as right to work, so it is very important to vote in the Primary, on June 9, 2020 or by absentee ballot.
As for all the other races, which include Governor, you may have noticed that we have endorsed both Democrats and Republicans, as I’ve always said; party doesn’t matter. The person and the issues are the deciding factor in every election. These are the candidates that have committed to helping us with our issues. We will not always agree on everything, but on our core working family’s issues we will work together and help protect our profession and our future as Operating Engineers. So with that in mind, let’s give the working people of this state a fair and honest chance at making a living wage and operating under safe working conditions.
REMEMBER EVERYONE CAN VOTE AN ABSENTEE BALLOT FOR THE PRIMARY ON JUNE 9, 2020. However, you must request a ballot from your county clerk.
