Valencia, Calif. – Today, the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters, the largest council in the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America (UBC), endorsed Bryan Caforio for Congress in California’s 25th Congressional District.
The UBC is one of the largest and oldest trade unions in the country and has long-maintained a bi-partisan approach to politics, supporting candidates on both sides of the aisle when they support UBC issues.
Caforio’s middle class platform has earned him the endorsement of the California Labor Federation, the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, and the Tri-County Labor Council, making Caforio the consensus choice for working families in the 25th district.
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.
