CWA Local 3179 President Stephen Sarnoff has filed to run for Florida's District 67 state representative seat in 2014.
"I want to run because I simply want to change the balance of power in Tallahassee," he told The Tampa Bay Times. "Whether it's not expanding Medicaid to 1.2 million Floridians, or it's the parent trigger bill to privatize the education system...you name it, I'm tired of it. I want to make sure there's one more Democrat up there so the Republicans do not have a super majority to continue steamrolling the people of Florida."
CWA will be showing our support for New York City mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio on Nov. 1. Wear red to the Labor GOTV rally at 5 p.m. at Brooklyn Borough Hall.
CWA #1 in New Jersey
This election year, CWA has had the most volunteers of any union in New Jersey. Here CWA Local 1082 members phone bank for the Democrats running to represent the 18th District in the New Jersey Legislature: Peter Barnes, Patrick Diegnan and Nancy Pinkin.
More than 60 CWA Local 1036 members turned out for voter outreach. Activists have partnered with New Jersey Workers' Voices to educate voters about pro-labor candidates and the opportunity to raise the minimum wage by voting "Yes" on Question 2.
