Lansing- Ron Bieber, President of the MI AFL-CIO released the following statement in regards to the labor federation’s endorsement of Lavora Barnes to be the next Chair of the Michigan Democratic Party.
“Lavora is well known and respected for her political skill, campaign knowledge, and strategic thinking. We know that she supports the freedoms of working people to join together to negotiate and protect the things we need to sustain our families. Our goal is to create new rules for the economy that work for everyone. To do that, we must elect pro-working family majorities at the local, state and federal levels. We know Lavora will be a great partner in achieving that goal and we look forward to working with her to recruit and elect candidates who support the working men and women of this state.”
