California Labor Federation endorses Tracy Emblem for U.S. Congress (CA50)
April 21, 2010 – To say that April 16th was a big day for Democratic Congressional Candidate, Tracy Emblem would be an understatement at the very least.
It was the start of the California Democratic Party‘s State Convention, where Tracy Emblem was joined by her family and supporters from all over the state to discuss key issues facing our country.
That Friday was the day that Tracy was informed that she had earned the support and endorsement of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1309 AKA, the San Diego Bus Drivers Union.
It was her birthday.
And it was the day that Art Pulaski, Executive Secretary – Treasurer of the California Labor Federation wrote to inform her that Unions representing more than 2 million members throughout California were on hand at the California Labor Federation’s statewide convention where their Committee on Political Education Endorsed her candidacy in the June primary election.
Tracy Emblem responded to the announcement:
I am tremendously honored to have the support and endorsement of the California Labor Federation. In my race, I’ve known from day one that winning the support and confidence of California’s working families is the key to unlocking California’s 50th Congressional District. Our working families are not red or blue, and this seat is not for sale! The California Labor Federation has been working to build our middle class, develop a quality workforce, keep the workplace safe, promote equality and protect employee rights. I am proud to be the candidate to fight for California’s working families and I will work hard to help rebuild our middle class with policies that stimulate our economy from the ground up and make America stronger.
Tracy is running for U.S. Congress in San Diego’s 50th District against Francine Busby, a Cardiff School Board trustee with only one endorsement by labor (California Teachers Association), to unseat the incumbent Republican Brian Bilbray who has no endorsements by labor.
