Longmont – The McCormick for Congress Campaign is thrilled to announce Karen McCormick has won the endorsement of American Postal Workers Union Local 229 in her race for Colorado’s 4th Congressional district. The eastern Colorado district is currently represented by an anti-union Republican.
“As someone who strongly supports working families and the unions that represent them, I am proud and grateful to earn their endorsement,” said McCormick. “We need to rebuild the middle class in this country with better wages, access to health care, and a dignified, secure retirement. I will represent those values in Congress. Ken Buck does not.”
According to the union’s political director, Paul Lindgren, “The APWU-DMAL #229 supports Karen McCormick because we feel she best represents the needs of people of Congressional District 4 and the very real concerns of our Union. We believe she will fight to protect postal workers’ jobs from subcontracting and will act to remove the unfair pension burden Congress enacted over a decade ago. We are proud to offer this endorsement.”
