I am proud to announce that I have received the endorsement of Laborers Local 507. This is incredibly good news for our campaign as we build support from labor, business, and community leaders. Laborers 507 has over 1,400 local members who have helped to build many of our local parks, libraries, schools, and freeways.
In their endorsement announcement, Peter Santillan, Business Manager and Secretary-Treasurer of Laborers Local 507, said "We are proud to endorse Vice Mayor Garcia for Mayor, and we are going to work hard to ensure he wins. Our members had an opportunity to meet with Robert and they unanimously embraced his vision of smart growth, business development, and job creation."
As Mayor, I plan to bring together labor and business to meet the challenges of the next economy. We need to encourage smart growth at our ports, in our Downtown, and along our business corridors. We can partner with our local building trades to build our public and private projects and train the local workforce.
Laborers Local 507 joins a growing list of support from throughout the city, and I am thankful for their support.
Go Long Beach,
Long Beach Vice Mayor
