Another Friday, another Endorsement! We skipped last week’s #EndorsementFriday to highlight our Saturday canvassing, so this week, we would like to announce that *deep breath* The International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America *phew* or better known as the United Automobile Workers has endorsed Miyoko’s run for State Senate!
According to their website,
The Community Action Program of the UAW (CAP) is the union’s non-partisan political arm. It is a department of the International Union. It isn’t a political party and it isn’t tied to a political party. It endorses candidates, on the basis of their records and their stand upon issues that affect working Americans. Over the years, CAP Councils have endorsed Democrats, Republicans, and Independents.
We received word from Kelli Harrison, the UAW Region 4 CAP Coordinator, that the CAP Council has officially endorsed one Miyoko Hikiji for Iowa State Senate. The Region 4 UAW covers Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
We are very grateful to the United Auto Workers for their acknowledgement of Miyoko’s commitment to working people!
Help us share the good news!
