Yawn. She seems to be getting all of them lately. This time it’s the Elevator Constructors and yes, the campaign’s press release goes right for all the puns that you can think of.
Elevator Constructors Give a Lift to Joseline Peña-Melnyk for Congress
LAUREL, MD - The International Union of Elevator Constructors – over 25,000 members strong – today gave their support to Joseline Peña-Melnyk for Congress. Since 1901, IUEC members have constructed safe, practical elevators that make skyscrapers, the symbol of America’s modern cities, possible.
Joseline Peña-Melnyk is running an energetic campaign to represent the people of Maryland’s 4th District, which includes large parts of Prince George’s and Anne Arundel Counties, extending from Forest Heights, to Hyattsville, to Laurel and on to Arnold, Maryland.
“I’m proud to have the support of the Elevator Constructors,” said Peña-Melnyk. “America’s union workers are a source of our nation’s strength and competitiveness. Unions are a critical part of our national workforce, providing training and opportunity for men and women. They’ll be a key partner for me in Congress as we work to keep America competitive in the 21st Century.”
“The International Union of Elevator Constructors Local 10 proudly endorses Joseline Peña-Melnyk for Congress. Joseline is a strong supporter for higher education, be it academically or vocationally. Joseline supports these core values not only by word but also by deed,” said Dave Geib of Elevator Constructors Local 10.
Peña-Melnyk has pushed the “up” button and is ascending as the candidate to beat. Her endorsements outpace others; earlier this week she was endorsed by CASA in Action, an immigrant advocacy organization in Maryland and Virginia. Last month, the Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers Local #24, and the Steamfitters UA Local #602 endorsed Joseline Peña-Melnyk. She is also endorsed by numerous other progressive organizations and many State and local officials, including:
· The Sierra Club,
· Democracy for America,
· Blue America,
· Progressive Change Campaign Committee,
· CHC BOLD PAC and
· PODER PAC.
