CLC Announces Early Endorsements For Upcoming Metro Elections

Yesterday, the Central Labor Council of Nashville & Middle TN, AFL-CIO embarked on its 2019 Municipal Election endorsement process.  An initial round of early endorsements was voted on by delegates for candidates that have championed pro-worker values and will campaign on issues that improve the lives of working families.  We support candidates who embrace our fight to secure economic justice and lifelong dignity for all working people.

Our endorsement process will include a Worker’s Town Hall on May 1 to provide candidates with an understanding of the diversity of worker concerns represented by CLC affiliates.  Completing a questionnaire that reflects a compilation of working families priorities and a screening process where candidates have the opportunity to engage in q/a with worker representatives on a variety of subjects.

In advance of that process, we are happy to announce the endorsement of a limited list of incumbents that have demonstrated commitment to working families at a time where our city seems to not always prioritize their interest.

 

Bob Mendes        At Large

Sharon Hurt        At Large

Brett Withers        District 6

Ed Kindall        District 21

Kathleen Murphy    District 24

Antionette Lee        District 33

Delisha Porterfield    District 29

 

In addition, Gary Moore former State Representative District 50 and President of the TN AFL-CIO was endorsed as an at-large candidate.

A special endorsement meeting will be held on May 23, 2019.  All other endorsements will be affirmed at that time.


The Central Labor Council of Nashville/Middle TN AFL-CIO represents more than 20,000 working families represented by more than 40 affiliated local unions and community organizations. We are united for dignity, respect, and fairness on the job and in our community.
