Teamsters Local 104 endorse Ariz. Green Party candidate Angel Torres

Angel Torres, the Green Party candidate for State Representative in Legislative District 16, has received the endorsement of the Executive Board of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 104.  Mr. Torres has worked in the airline industry for 23 years, and has been a member of the Teamsters since August 2004.  He was a leader of the union organizing committee at his job, served on his bargaining unit’s first contract negotiating committee, and has been a union shop steward since January 2005.  He received his union’s endorsement at their recent General Membership meeting on September 25th, 2010.  Mr. Torres says,

It is an honor to receive the endorsement of my union, Teamsters Local 104, for my campaign for State Representative.  Six years ago, the Teamsters were instrumental in our successful organizing campaign at my job.  I know that I can count on them for support in my run for the Arizona State Legislature.  I hope that rank-and-file members from other unions will also volunteer to work on my campaign.

Andrew Marshall, Secretary-Treasurer of Teamsters Local 104, said, “Angel has represented his co-workers well, as a union shop steward and a contract negotiating committee member.  If elected as State Representative, I believe he will bring that same level of commitment to the residents of Legislative District 16.  It’s about time that we as the labor movement and the working class elect one of our own to represent us in government.”

Mr. Torres has been a registered Green since 1992, has served as the state co-chair of the Arizona Green Party (AZGP) since 2004, and has received the endorsement of AZGP.  For more information, and to volunteer for his campaign, visit these websites: ;; and .
