“Now more than ever, we need fighters like Aaron Ford in the Attorney General’s office so that workers finally have a champion in their corner”
Las Vegas, Nev. — Today, Senate Majority Leader Aaron Ford received an early endorsement in his race for Nevada Attorney General from the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters, an affiliate of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America (UBC). The Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters represent 50,000 union carpenters in six states, including Nevada.
“The Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters gets behind candidates who have worked with us on issues that benefit Nevada’s working men and women, and Aaron Ford has always been our partner,” said Frank Hawk, Administrative Assistant of The Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters. “Now more than ever, we need fighters like Aaron Ford in the Attorney General’s office so that workers finally have a champion in their corner fighting to protect their wages, defend their benefits, and ensure their ability to retire with dignity. We are proud to give our early endorsement to Aaron Ford, and we will work side-by-side with his campaign to get him elected in 2018.”
“Carpenters across Nevada have helped drive this state’s economy forward, and I am honored to receive their early endorsement,” said Aaron Ford, candidate for Nevada Attorney General. “The Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters has a strong tradition of craftsmanship and a history of making sure the job is done right. As the United Brotherhood of Carpenters says, I’ll be sure to work shoulder to shoulder to make sure that all craftsmen get a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work.”
Aaron Ford announced his bid for Nevada Attorney General in an open letter to his fellow Nevadans in September. In addition to his endorsement from the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters, Aaron has received endorsements from The Collective PAC, U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, House Representatives Dina Titus and Jacky Rosen, law enforcement leaders including former Washoe County Sheriff Mike Haley, former Clark County Sheriff Bill Young, former Henderson Chief of Police Richard Perkins, and former Southern Nevada Conference of Police and Sheriffs President Dave Kallas.
