International Union of Painters and Allied Trades Endorses Bryan Caforio
Recognizes Caforio’s dedication to working families
Santa Clarita, Calif. – Today, the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades District Council 36 endorsed Bryan Caforio, Democratic candidate in California’s 25th Congressional District. Made up of ten local unions, IUPAT District Council 36 represents more than 11,000 Southern California workers.
“We are proud to support Bryan Caforio for Congress in the 25th District,” said Robert Smith, IUPAT District Council 36 Political Director. “Bryan will be a fighter for prevailing wage, the right to organize, and benefits for our workers and families. He will stand to protect our workers from right-to-work (for less) legislation and voter suppression. Let’s work together to help elect Bryan to Congress.”
With support from more than a dozen labor unions in the district and endorsements from more than thirty local officials, Caforio is proud to stand with the working men and women of the 25th District. He also recently announced an endorsement from the North Valley Democratic Club.
The son of two public school teachers, Caforio was born and raised in Southern California, 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 and corporations. Bryan lives in Santa Clarita with his wife Lisa, who serves as a Deputy City Attorney at the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.
California’s 25th Congressional District covers northern Los Angeles County and part of Ventura County, including the Santa Clarita Valley, Antelope Valley, and Simi Valley. Hillary Clinton won the district by more than six points in 2016, registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans, and the district is majority-minority. The district is now considered a “toss-up” and is held by Tea Party Republican Steve Knight, whom national Republicans have publicly identified as one of their most vulnerable incumbents. Polling shows Democrats with a double-digit lead over Knight.
