Today, Teamsters Local 730 announced its endorsement of former Maryland Delegate Aisha Braveboy in her race for Prince George’s County State’s Attorney. Local 730 has roughly 1,800 members that work in the grocery, food distribution and warehouse industries throughout the Metropolitan Washington, DC region. Local 730 has over 700 members that live and work primarily in Prince George’s County.
“We are proud to support Aisha Braveboy in the race to become the next State’s Attorney for Prince George’s County” said Ritchie Brooks, President of Teamsters Local 730. Aisha is a tireless advocate for good jobs and working families. “Aisha was essential to saving over 700 jobs at the Safeway Collington Distribution Center in Prince George’s County that were slated for elimination” said Brooks. “Braveboy is a proven leader that will produce positive results for the County as she has done throughout her entire career” said Brooks.
Local 730’s endorsement includes financial support and assistance with mobilizing voters for the June 26, 2018 Maryland primary election. Local 730’s endorsement comes on the heels of Braveboy’s recent endorsement by the AFL-CIO Metropolitan Washington Council. “I am grateful to receive the endorsement of Teamsters Local 730” said Braveboy. “I look forward to partnering with the labor movement to increase good jobs and public safety as State’s Attorney” said Braveboy.
