    Thank you for this information. Great job on our new website!

    Question: Are their links or more information you can provide us in regards to measures and all the candidates we are endorsing, with geographic maps, for each candidate’s contingency?

    Many of our union members do not even know what district they belong to; that’s why I ask.

      Thank you Emilio. We have a very small staff for Primary Races, with little capacity for your great idea! For now, please just search the web by typing in the measure, county/state and year- and the info will come up. For candidates, search using the key words: name of candidate, position they are running for, and the year. You will find their website, and many good articles.

      Thanks again, Lawrence Abbott, ALC Political Organizer
