Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters Endorses Katie Hobbs for Governor
PHOENIX—This morning, the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters and Secretary Katie Hobbs held a press conference to announce the union’s endorsement in Katie’s run to be Arizona’s next governor.
“I am thrilled to stand with the men and women of the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters, and I am grateful for their support in my campaign to be Arizona’s next governor,” said Secretary of State Katie Hobbs. “Unions are the foundation of our middle class. We need their activism and we need to support their work, so that all families can make a living wage and keep our economy moving.”
“As union carpenters we take pride in our work. Our members build critical projects like roads, bridges, light rail, and water infrastructure that keep our state moving and growing,” said the President of Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters and Local 1912 Fabian Sanchez. “That’s exactly how Secretary Hobbs has always conducted her work: exact, precise, and on the level. In the state legislature she fought for good wages and benefits for workers. As Secretary of State she has stood up against those that would overturn our democracy because they didn’t like the result of an election. And as Governor she’ll invest in our infrastructure, defend working families, and be a voice for all Arizonans.”
The Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters Local 1912 represents over 3,500 hard-working carpenters in Arizona. The union is committed to elevating the economic and social well-being of workers by working with developers and elected leaders to drive community wealth.
When in the legislature, Katie supported Arizona unions and their right to organize, and continues to be a strong advocate for prevailing wage rules to ensure that workers are provided fair wages. As Secretary of State, she has stood up against those who are trying to overturn the 2020 election and threaten our democracy. Katie is dedicated to building a strong economy and supporting good jobs with the help of the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters.
