LARA CONTINUES TO BE THE CHOICE OF WORKING FAMILIES FOR INSURANCE COMMISSIONER

Endorsement from the State Building & Construction Trades Council of California Bolsters Ricardo Lara’s Statewide Effort

 

LONG BEACH, CA-- In another demonstration of his expansive support among organizations in the labor movement, today State Senator Ricardo Lara picked up a milestone endorsement from the State Building & Construction Trades Council of California in his campaign for California State Insurance Commissioner.

In announcing their endorsement of Senator Lara's statewide effort, Robbie Hunter, President of the State Building and Construction Trades Council of California wrote:

 

"A passionate friend of labor for nearly seven years in elective office, State Sen.Ricardo Lara has earned the endorsement of the State Building and Construction Trades Council of California in his campaign for State Insurance Commissioner.

"Ricardo Lara has a long history of understanding working families, on issues like health insurance, auto insurance, and home insurance. He will fight against things like redlining, where you might not be able to get coverage if you live in a zip code that some insurance companies don’t like. He will give California a fair-level, comprehensive insurance system, where if you pay for it, you should get insurance. Few legislative leaders have a personal story that is as compelling as Lara’s... He’ll be streamlined and efficient. But at the same time, he will deliver to the taxpayer, the resident, the family, what it is that they are paying for.” 

Today's announcement follows the release of the Senator's new digital video ad, titled, "Embolden," which takes aim at Donald Trump's backwards agenda and the President's comments saying that "California is out of control," by illustrating the sharp contrast between the Oval Office's agenda and that of Lara's.
