Minnesota Construction Unions Endorse Tim Walz for Governor and Peggy Flanagan for Lieutenant Governor

The Minnesota Building and Construction Trades Council proudly announced today the endorsement of Tim Walz for Governor and Peggy Flanagan for Lieutenant Governor.

“In Congress, Tim has been an effective leader for Minnesota’s working families. Tim fights for a Minnesota where we invest in jobs, and maintain our roads, bridges, and transit across all corners of the state,” stated Craig Olson, Secretary/Treasurer.

“Peggy Flanagan is an effective legislator and advocate for Minnesota children and their families. Peggy believes in a Minnesota where every child has the opportunity to succeed and a Minnesota with fair wages, fully funded public schools, and affordable healthcare as a right, not a privilege,” stated Carly Melin, Executive Director.

This endorsement is the first of several to be announced prior to the November 2018 election in support of candidates who will work to keep labor interests and investment in MN infrastructure a priority.
