Reeves: “We need progressive action to give every Washington family a living wage, affordable health care, and greater opportunity”
Kristine Reeves continues to build a strong, grassroots campaign for Washington’s 10th Congressional District, this week receiving the sole endorsement of Teamsters Joint Council No. 28, and all 12 local Teamsters unions in Washington state: Locals 38, 58, 117, 174, 231, 252, 313, 589, 690, 760, 763, 839. Kristine, who comes from a proud union family as a former WFSE member herself, and her husband a member of ALPA and former Teamster, continues to pick up strong union endorsements, highlighting her deep commitment to Washington’s working families.
On the Teamsters Joint Council No. 28 Endorsement, Kristine Reeves said, “I’m proud to earn the support and trust of Teamsters Joint Council No. 28, who is dedicated to giving Washington workers a voice, hard-earned wages, and benefits. Again and again, we’ve seen the other Washington look out for special interests while working families get left behind. That’s why I’m running for Congress – we need progressive action to give every family in this Washington and across our country a living wage, affordable health care, and greater economic opportunity.”
Teamsters Joint Council No. 28 President Rick Hicks said, “We at Teamsters Joint Council 28 know Kristine will be working people’s strongest advocate. She’s proven to be a fighter for Washington state’s working family and will be the fighter we need to protect our health care, expand opportunity, and defend workers’ and unions’ rights, including members’ hard earned pensions.”
Reeves, who outraised the field in her first quarter in the race, has picked up dozens of endorsements from diverse and progressive leaders across Washington including Congressman Adam Smith, all the members of the Washington State Legislature’s Black Members Caucus, LiUNA, and other high-profile state and community leaders.
