This past weekend, CWAers and other union activists joined members of environmental and community groups in walking San Diego neighborhoods to support the campaign of city council member David Alvarez for mayor. CWA President Larry Cohen was among the nearly 1,000 activists who knocked on doors and talked to voters.
Alvarez is a young, progressive breakthrough candidate who wants to help build "a city that works for everyone." Alvarez and council members have been moving forward on programs to improve the lives of all city residents.
His loss in the mayoral race Tuesday night was a setback, but the coalition of unions and environmental activists partnering for progressive change will only get stronger.
