LV Bldg Trades Endorse Morganelli in AG Race
Morganelli has a long history of labor support. His father was a lifetime union blue collar worker who worked as an oiler with the International Union of Operating Engineers Local #542 for 30 years. He was also a Teamsters for 10 years. As a steelworker, he was a member of AFL/CIO. John's mother was a union garment worker and member of ILGWU. Morganelli represented a union before he was DA and has been attentive to union issues including enforcement of the Construction Misclassification Act.
"I am proud to have the support of the LV Building Trades," beamed Morganelli. "They know me the best and my commitment to enforcing laws that protect the hard working men and women in the labor force."
