The Orange County Labor Federation (OCLF) delegate body voted last Thursday to endorse Senator Lou Correa for his County Supervisor candidacy, in the special election set for January 27th of 2015. The deciding delegate body voted after the Committee on Political Education (COPE) conducted candidate interviews and a recommendation was made and voted on by the Executive Board.
As the election approaches to fill the vacated seat on the Orange County Board of Supervisors, OCLF endorsed the only candidate who will make sure workers and communities have a seat at the table.
“We represent more than 90 local unions here at the Federation and Senator Lou Correa would represent a large portion of our membership. He has worked to create jobs, bringing together labor and businesses, working together on issues and focusing on the future of the communities he represents,” said Julio Perez, Executive Director of the Orange County Labor Federation.
Sen. Lou Correa has years of experience in public service, serving Orange County communities in the California State Assembly and most recently serving the 34th Senate District until he reached his term limit this year.
The election is to fill the seat vacated by Janet Nguyen following her election to the State Senate. If elected, Correa would complete the remaining two years of the four-year term.
Vote-by-mail ballots are expected to arrive on December 29th in the cities of Garden Grove, Santa Ana, Westminster and portions of Fountain Valley and the unincorporated community of Midway City.
