This morning the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) Endorsed our Campaign for Mayor of Long Beach. I’m proud to have the support of the hard working men and women who work to keep the Port of Long Beach an economic powerhouse. "The ILWU proudly supports and stands united behind Vice Mayor Robert Garcia. He knows the port, he knows the challenges we face, and he's ready to lead on day one," said Bobby Olvera, Jr., President of ILWU Local 13.
The Port of Long Beach is the economic engine of our city. We need to ensure that we are growing, investing, and supporting trade. I'm honored to have the support of the ILWU.
Our Campaign is also endorsed by Congressmembers Alan Lowenthal, Janice Hahn and Linda Sanchez; State Senate pro Tem Darrell Steinberg; State Senator Ricardo Lara; Long Beach Mayor Bob Foster; Long Beach Councilwoman Suja Lowenthal; Long Beach School Board President John McGinnis; the Long Beach Police Officers Association; the California Nurses Association; the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters; Laborers’ Local 507; UA Local 250; the Long Beach Press-Telegram; Long Beach Register and hundreds of community members.
Go Long Beach!
Vice Mayor Robert Garcia
