Labor Council Solely Endorses Teacher Lynne Dodson For 43rd State Legislative District Open House Seat

May 13, 2006

The Washington State Labor Council (WSLC) voted overwhelmingly to solely endorse Lynne Dodson for the 43rd Legislative District house seat.

“As a teacher and as president American Federation of Teachers Local Union #1789, Lynne has been a champion for working families,” said Rick Bender, President of the WSLC. “We’re confident she’ll continue that work as the next State Representative in the 43rd District.”

Despite a crowded field, Dodson has continued to earn key endorsements from local leaders including; State Representatives Sherry Appleton, Steve Conway, Tami Green, Bob Hasegawa, Zack Hudgins, and Sharon Tomiko Santos, State Senators Adam Kline and Karen Kaiser and numerous other local leaders.

The endorsement of the WSLC is highly coveted by local Democratic candidates for its grassroots strength. With nearly 300,000 union members from over 500 locals across the state, the WSLC is the largest labor organization in Washington State.

The 43rd Legislative district is located in Seattle and includes the Capitol Hill, Wallingford and University District neighborhoods.
