Carpenters go for Kitzhaber

The Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters endorsed John Kitzhaber for governor at its quarterly council delegate meeting Feb. 20.

“Job creation is our only priority this election cycle, and John Kitzhaber is the only candidate for governor that we trust to grow our economy,” said Carpenters Political Director John Littel. “We have known John for a long time and we trust him. He has always understood the needs of working families throughout the state.”

The Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters represents over 20,000 carpenters, piledrivers, drywallers, millwrights, trade show workers, shipwrights, exterior/interior specialists, scaffold erectors, insulators and related craft workers.

The Carpenters were the top donor to Kitzhaber’s 1998 re-election campaign.

Other unions supporting Kitzhaber are United Food and Commercial Workers Local 555, the Oregon State Building and Construction Trades Council, the Oregon State Council of Firefighters, and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 48.
