Celebrating Labor On Labor Day

We have come too far–struggled too long, sacrificed too much and have too much left to do–to allow that which we have achieved for the good of all to be swept away without a fight. And we have not forgotten how to fight.

While it’s nice to have an extra day out of the office, and I was happy to snag a few items for the wedding at 20% off, the best part of this Labor Day was having breakfast with members of the North Bay Labor Council, ALF-CIO, and talking about the important work left to do fo the true backbone of our economy: our workforce.

In Sonoma, this means recognizing our workforce is being squeezed out of our existing housing stock. This is an issue of social inequality, and it’s an issue of economic sustainability.

Creating housing opportunities for our workforce is the most critical issue we currently face as a community. The solutions aren’t easy, but they are essential. I am up for this challenge.

I’d also like to give a shout out to my fellow candidates Logan Harvey and Jack Ding who also attended this morning’s breakfast.

Thank you North Bay Labor Council and all of your members for working hard for the safety and well-being of our workers.

Thank you Operating Engineers Local 3 for your endorsement and support of my re-election campaign.

Let’s get to work!
