Vincent Gray gets labor backing
The Metropolitan Washington Council of the AFL-CIO, which boasts 150,000 members in the region, voted Monday night to endorse Vincent C. Gray in the mayor’s race, D.C. Wire reports.
The vote by AFL-CIO leaders and delegates, who represented more than 200 affiliate labor organizations, was unanimous, according to Gray's campaign.
Joslyn N. Williams, president of the Washington Council, said in a statement Tuesday morning that union leaders were proud to back Gray because he has the "broad vision and deep community roots" that "the District needs to come together."
