Just days after winning the Democratic nomination for Mayor of Providence, Jorge Elorza secured the endorsement of the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 328 and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 23.
“Jorge Elorza provides the leadership we need to make Providence a city where workers and their families can thrive,” said Jim Riley, Secretary Treasurer of UFCW Local 328. “His working class background and values will help him bring people together from every neighborhood to revitalize our communities and strengthen our economy.”
“We believe that new leadership is needed to serve our beautifully diverse population. Jorge Elorza is that leader,” said IATSE Local 23’s Business Agent, Michael Araujo. “We believe Jorge’s story represents the best of Providence and shows commitment to growth, hope, and loyalty.”
“As the child of factory workers, I understand the importance of organized labor and the struggles of our city’s working families,” said Elorza. “It’s an honor to earn the support of the dedicated workers of these two great unions. Together, we’ll make Providence a better place for all working families.”
Elorza is the Democratic nominee in the November 4 election for Mayor of Providence.
