I’m excited to announce that I have been granted the endorsement of the Contra Costa Building and Construction Trades Council for my mayoral campaign of 2018. This is a very important and influential group.
There are currently 1,500 members of the building and construction trades unions working on the Chevron Modernization Project in Richmond where Chevron is spending $40 million per month.
