2019 Endorsements

Denver Area Labor Federation Releases Endorsements for 2019 Municipal Elections

Metro areas largest labor body backs candidates with clear record, bold vision, and a passion for fighting for working people

DENVER – Today the Denver Area Labor Federation (DALF) released its 2019 Denver metro area Municipal Endorsements.

Denver Area Labor Federation President Josh Downey said, “We’re proud to stand with our endorsed candidates because they stand with working families.  We are no longer content with candidates who simply provide platitudes to our members. We are demanding that the candidates we support take bold stands on collective bargaining, job creation, higher wages, affordable housing, a just transition for workers, and improving our schools.  The workers who make the Denver metro area great deserve leaders who will help them build an economy that works for everyone and not just the wealthy few.  And we look forward to working with those newly-elected leaders after the election this fall.”

To receive the Denver Area Labor Federation endorsement each candidate was asked to complete a four-step process which included an apprenticeship tour, a candidate education forum, a candidate questionnaire and a panel interview.  “We are confident that the 90,000 plus union members, the 114 local unions, and countless job classifications represented by DALF will be served well by our endorsed candidates,” said Muriel Ponder an APWU member who participated in the endorsement process.
