Tri-Counties Labor Council Endorses Allison for Congress

The 24th District candidate picks up the support of the 6,000-member Building and Construction Trades Council

The Tri-Counties Building and Construction Trades Council on Wednesday announced its endorsement of candidate Tim Allison in the 24th District congressional race.

The Building and Construction Trades Council represents 32 affiliated unions with more than 6,000 members.

In an event billed as “Tacos with Tim,” Allison met Wednesday with union members to hear their concerns about jobs and the economy and to announce the endorsement. The event was held at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers hall in Ventura.

“Tim Allison is the best candidate in the race for Congress, and we enthusiastically endorse his candidacy,” said Steve Weiner, executive secretary-treasurer for the council. “In these difficult economic times, Tim understands the need to jump-start the economy and create jobs. Tim Allison will make a great member of Congress, and our members will work hard to help him get there.”

Allison said: “I am proud to accept this endorsement from the Building Trades Council and its 32 unions and 6,000 members. We must get this economy back on track while creating good jobs for the working men and women of Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. As a member of Congress, I’ll work hard to jump-start the economy, reform health care and improve education. Constituents in our district deserve no less.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
