Baltimore Washington Laborers' District Council Endorses Silverman, DC Councilmember At-Large

Washington, D.C. (August 27, 2018) —Today, the Baltimore Washington Laborers’ District Council (BWLDC), an affiliate of the Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA), announced its endorsement of Elissa Silverman for re-election as DC Councilmember At-Large (I).

“Time and again, Councilmember Elissa Silverman has demonstrated that she stands with working people,” said David Allison, Business Manager of the Baltimore Washington Laborers’ District Council. Councilmember Silverman’s two greatest legislative accomplishments during her first term—paid family leave and strengthening the unemployment insurance program—are indicative of her efforts to put working people front and cente

“Councilmember Silverman provides an essential, independent voice on the Council,” said Allison. “She scrutinizes the details, and is not afraid to push back on the status quo.”

Across the Baltimore-Washington region, the BWLDC seeks to endorse and support candidates for elected office who align with the values of its members. The endorsement of DC At-Large Councilmember Elissa Silverman for re-election is part of that effort. 





The Baltimore Washington Laborers’ District Council, an affiliate of the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA), represents more than 7,000 LIUNA members who live and work in the Baltimore-Washington region.
