Laborers' Union Endorses Hogan, Current Maryland Governor

Annapolis, Md. (August 8, 2018) -- Today, the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) announced its endorsement of Governor Larry Hogan in Maryland’s gubernatorial election. 

“When we endorse a candidate, we look far beyond his or her political affiliation,” said LIUNA President, Terry O’ Sullivan. “What matters is whether or not a candidate supports us in our mission of creating better lives for working families. We are proud to support Governor Hogan’s reelection campaign and look forward to working together to strengthen the livelihoods of middle class workers throughout the great state of Maryland.”

Like LIUNA, Governor Hogan knows the importance of building a 21st century infrastructure for Maryland.

“Transportation infrastructure continues to take a back seat for many elected officials,” said Dennis Martire, LIUNA Regional Manager and Vice President of the Mid-Atlantic region. “It’s refreshing to see Governor Hogan’s proposed plans for Maryland’s roads and highways.”

LIUNA intends to work alongside Governor Hogan and his Administration to move these proposed projects along and ensure agreements that guarantee workers living wages and benefits.

“We have appreciated the Governor’s willingness to work with us throughout his Administration,” continued Martire. “We look forward to continuing to work closely with him during the next four years to ensure that our members benefit from the tremendous growth and modernization we are seeing in Maryland.”

LIUNA proudly joins brothers and sisters from several unions who have also announced their endorsement of Governor Hogan.


The Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) Mid-Atlantic Region represents more than 40,000 working men and women predominantly in the construction industry in Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, the District of Columbia, Virginia and North Carolina
