Early Labor Endorsements

Josh Mandelbaum Announces Initial Labor Endorsements

Des Moines – Des Moines City Council Ward 3 candidate Josh Mandelbaum announced endorsements from several labor unions today. Collectively, these organizations represent over 20,000 hard-working men and women who help build Des Moines’ public and private infrastructure and make our city work.

“Our community is stronger when everyone has the opportunity that comes from a good job and a decent wage. The Des Moines City Council needs voices that will defend local policies that provide apprenticeship opportunities, support local workers, and help strengthen our middle class. Our community needs voices that recognize the critical role of our public employees, and elected officials who understand that we provide better service when we work together and value everyone’s contribution to making our government and our community work,” said Josh Mandelbaum.

“I am proud to have the support of labor unions representing hard working Des Moines residents. These workers build our community and make our city run. I look forward to working with them to make our community stronger and provide more opportunities to the residents of Des Moines,” said Josh Mandelbaum.
