International Brotherhood of Teamsters Joint Council 42 Endorses Bryan Caforio for Congress
Valencia, Calif. – Today the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Joint Council 42, endorsed Bryan Caforio for Congress in the 25th Congressional District. Teamsters Joint Council 42 is the parent body to 22 Teamster Local Unions representing airline workers, motion picture and theatrical trade workers, and building material and construction laborers.
“Bryan has spent his career fighting for the middle class, taking on some of the biggest banks on behalf of homeowners, and winning,” said President of Teamsters Joint Council 42 Randy Cammack. “We are proud to support an advocate of working families.”
“I am honored to earn the support of Teamsters Joint Council 42,” said Caforio. “Our brothers and sisters in Labor have fought tirelessly to protect hardworking Americans. In Congress, I’ll keep fighting for fair pay, strong health benefits and the fundamental right to collectively bargain.”
Caforio was born and raised in Southern California by two public school teachers, attended UCLA and Yale Law School, worked for a United States federal judge, and practices as an attorney taking on some of the world’s biggest banks. Bryan lives in Valencia with his wife Lisa, who serves as a Deputy City Attorney at the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.
The 25th District covers northern Los Angeles County and part of Ventura County including the Antelope Valley, Palmdale, Lancaster, Santa Clarita, and Simi Valley. President Obama won the district in 2008, and experts consider it a toss-up in a Presidential election year. Last year Democratic registration eclipsed Republican registration for the first time, and the district is now majority-minority. National Republicans list Congressman Knight as one of their most vulnerable incumbents.
