Valencia, Calif. – Today, the United Food and Commercial Workers, Local 770 endorsed Bryan Caforio for Congress in California’s 25th Congressional District.

Representing over 30,000 workers in retail food, drug stores, packinghouses, food processing plants, pharmacies and laboratories across Los Angeles, Ventura, Kern, and Santa Barbara Counties, the organization has been widely praised for its efforts to raise food and workplace safety standards, and ensure hardworking families have economic security.
In their endorsement, Rick Icaza, President, UFCW Local 770 said, “Bryan has spent his career fighting for the middle class. He’ll fight to guarantee women are paid the same as men for doing the same work, and end wage discrimination. People in the 25th District, not corporations, need a voice in Congress. Bryan will work relentlessly on behalf of working men and women to make sure their voices are heard.”

Caforio’s record of fighting for homeowners and working families has earned him endorsements from the California Labor Federation, SEIU California, and the California School Employees Association.

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.
