From the Finch campaign:
The statewide United Food and Commercial Workers Union today endorsed Mayor Bill Finch for reelection.
“During his first four years in office, Mayor Finch has demonstrated the leadership necessary to move Bridgeport forward,” said Thomas Wilkinson, President, Local 371, UFCW. “We appreciate Mayor Finch’s pro-union support and we know he understands the value of union labor. We fully endorse Mayor Finch in his re-election bid.” Wilkinson also is president of the Fairfield County Labor Council, AFL-CIO.
“I am proud to have the endorsement of UFCW,” said Mayor Finch. “When I ran for Mayor in 2007, I made it a priority to support the work of our unions. I look forward to four more years of working with the UFCW, in our efforts to revitalize our City.”
