Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters endorses Juan Carrillo for State Assembly District 39

The Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters announced their endorsement of Palmdale City Councilman Juan Carrillo for California State Assembly District 39 today.

“The Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters is proud to support Juan Carrillo for State Assembly,” Pete Rodriguez, the Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters, said. “Juan lives in this district, has raised a family in this district, and has led on creating more affordable housing and good-paying jobs on the Palmdale City Council. As an Assemblymember, we know Juan will be a fighter for good jobs, wages, and benefits. We can’t wait to start working alongside him in Sacramento to support Carpenter families.”

The Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters represents more than 57,000 men and women who work as concrete form carpenters, drywallers, lathers, insulators, finish carpenters, millwrights, industrial carpenters, cabinet makers, cabinet installers, bridge builders, scaffold erectors, acoustical ceiling installers, pile drivers, modular furniture installers, shinglers, terrazzo installers, residential carpenters, and floor installers in Southern California and five other states. It is the largest council of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America in the country.

“From long commute times to the lack of quality training programs to inadequate health care coverage, members of the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters in the Antelope and Victor Valleys face fixable obstacles that impact their quality of life every single day,” Carrillo said. “I am ready and excited to be the strong, proactive, and long-overdue leader our community needs to address these issues and the many others facing working people and their families in our region.”

In addition to the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters, Carrillo has earned the endorsements of California State Senator Anna Caballero, Palmdale School District Board Member Simon Zulu, Former Palmdale Water District Director Robert Alvarado, and Santa Monica City Councilmember Oscar de la Torre.
