Endorsement: Southern Maine Labor Council

I’m proud to receive the endorsement of the Southern Maine Labor Council, and I honor the workers whose labor is the foundation of life in our city. Everything we love about Portland depends on labor: the water we drink and the food we eat; the sidewalks, roads, and bridges that connect us; the education our children receive; the entertainment that sustains our spirit, and the uncompensated domestic and emotional labor that so many of us do in order to make other work possible. There is no capital without labor!

The Southern Maine Labor Council is dedicated to the more effective organization of working men and women; to the securing to them of full recognition and enjoyment of the rights to which they are justly entitled; to the achievement of ever higher standards of living and working conditions; to the attainment of security for all the people; to the enjoyment of the leisure which their skills make possible; and to the strengthening and extension of the fundamental freedoms which are the basis of a democratic society.
