A press release from the Indiana/Kentucky Regional Council of Carpenters:
The Indiana/Kentucky Regional Council of Carpenters did not participate in the vote to support Change to Win Kentucky’s decision not to endorse Bruce Lunsford and Greg Stumbo in their campaign to govern the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
“The Carpenters and Millwrights have in fact met with the Lunsford – Stumbo team, as well as other candidates in the race for Governor. We are very interested in discussing the issues facing working families in Kentucky with every candidate, and we would encourage other labor organizations to do the same, said David Tharp, Executive Secretary-Treasurer / Business Manager of the Carpenters and Millwrights Regional Council. Tharp went on to say “Greg Stumbo is one of many friends of labor who fill the ballot in this year’s primary election. Our members in Kentucky are very fortunate to count many friends among the group of candidates, and we will certainly not close our ears to any of them. The Carpenters and Millwrights will continue to discuss their issues with the candidates, and we will speak for ourselves, if and when an endorsement decision is made.”
