The Central PA Building & Construction Trades Council recently voted to officially endorse Joe Waltz for state representative in Pennsylvania House District 76.
The Council represents thousands of skilled workers regionally, including members of the Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 520. These skilled workers build commercial, industrial, residential, transportation, water and energy infrastructure projects across our region.
“As rural communities look to compete, having safe bridges, commercial infrastructure, capacity to expand residential areas, diversified energy sources and access to high-speed broadband internet will be critical,” said Waltz. “I will work with all stakeholders to find cost-effective solutions to these challenges, while also supporting a fair wage and safety for workers.”
Waltz, who served 34 years as an educator within the Keystone Central School District before retiring in 2007, previously earned the support of the PSEA (Pennsylvania State Education Association), APSCUF (Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties), PA AFL-CIO (PA American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations), and AFSCME Council 13 (American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees). Waltz supports workers rights and efforts to help attract new job opportunities to the 76th District.
Waltz’s campaign is focused on the people and matters that impact their daily lives, such as good jobs and decent pay; quality education; fiscal responsibility and accountability to the taxpayer; and public health and accessibility to affordable healthcare.
