United Steelworkers Endorse Jim Gray for Congress
Before first televised debate, momentum grows for Gray
Lexington, Ky. – Lexington Mayor Jim Gray’s campaign is proud to announce that the United Steelworkers union has endorsed Gray’s bid for Congress. The Steelworkers stand up for the working men and women of Kentucky, and Jim is proud to stand with them.
In their letter to Gray, the Steelworkers said that the mayor “has advocated and proven he stands up for WORKING PEOPLE in the Sixth Congressional District and Kentucky.”
“He supports equal rights for all, including equal pay for women, higher paying jobs, safe and healthy work places,” the letter said.
Gray said that he is “honored that the Steelworkers Union have endorsed my campaign.”
“I know how hard they work, and I promise to work hard for them,” Gray said. “All too often, Washington forgets about working people in favor of big donors and Wall Street. When I get there, the Steelworkers Union will know they have an ally.”
