August 2015 CLC Endorsements

As you know, largely due to term limits, more than 2/3 of our city Council and our city Mayor will be

elected on Thursday August 6. Since February, the Central Labor Council of Nashville/Middle TN has

worked to develop a comprehensive list of affiliate issues, challenges and priorities. With those mind, all

candidate contact was designed to be member-based, issue-focused and objective. We believe that the

final list of endorsements reflect our commitment to our members that issues come first, candidates

and parties second. We recognize our critical role as an independent voice for working families and we

take this very seriously. Our power and influence as a collective body is now in your hands. We urge all

Affiliate Unions to share the endorsements of the CLC with your members and their families and get

them to the polls. We have the power to effect the outcome of these elections and improve the lives of

working families in Nashville/Middle TN. We are Union and WE VOTE!  

- Vonda McDaniel, President CLC of Nashville and Middle TN
