Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO Endorses Bryan Caforio
Endorsement solidifies Caforio as the choice of working families
Valencia, Calif. – Today the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO the largest labor council in California has endorsed Bryan Caforio for Congress in California’s 25th Congressional District.
“Throughout his career, Bryan Caforio has fought for the middle class, working families and immigrants,” said Rusty Hicks, Executive Secretary-Treasurer. “He has taken on some of the biggest banks on behalf of homeowners and won. At a time when corporations continue to make record profits, we trust Bryan Caforio to represent the people of the 25th District, not Washington special interests. The Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO proudly endorses Bryan Caforio for Congress.”
Representing over 300 unions and hundreds of thousands of working women and men throughout Los Angeles County, the group’s well earned reputation for political mobilization on behalf of its endorsed candidates is one of the most significant endorsements a candidate can receive.
“I am humbled to earn the support of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor. I grew up in a union household and know first hand the benefits a living wage and a quality public education can provide. I will fight every day on behalf of working men and women, by making sure we are investing in the 25th District, helping create good paying jobs, making college more affordable, and raising the minimum wage.”
Caforio was born and raised in Southern California by two public school teachers, attended UCLA and Yale Law School, worked for a United States federal judge, and practices as an attorney taking on some of the world’s biggest banks. Bryan lives in Valencia with his wife Lisa, who serves as a Deputy City Attorney at the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.
The 25th District covers northern Los Angeles County and part of Ventura County including the Antelope Valley, Palmdale, Lancaster, Santa Clarita, and Simi Valley. President Obama won the district in 2008, and experts consider it a toss-up in a Presidential election year. Last year Democratic registration eclipsed Republican registration for the first time, and the district is now majority-minority. National Republicans list Congressman Knight as one of their most vulnerable incumbents.
