    • What's New at IBEW 494


      Election time is upon us once again leading up to the November elections. 

      Every election cycle you’re reminded by your Local, Local 494, of how important
      it is to get out and vote and to choose a candidate whose interests align with Labor. 
      Unfortunately, Labor has been given numerous examples in our own State recently
      to remind us of the importance in choosing the right candidate.

      Local 494’s PAC (Political Action Committee) has one interest when interviewing
      candidates and that is Labor…ALL LABOR.  The committee does not take into account
      what party an individual has behind their name.  Quite frankly the PAC committee
      wants that left at the door before an interview.

      The PAC committee has never been shy about advertising to members to be
      involved whether it be door knocking, phone banking, or simply attending
      the monthly PAC meetings; 1st Thursday every month, 5:30PM, at Local 494
      (3303 South 103rd Street, Milwaukee).  A handful of people can’t do the work that
      the 2400 members of Local 494 can do collectively.  In the coming months you will
      be asked (or better yet ask what you can do) to help Local 494 in reaching out to candidates. 
      Above all of that, the only way a candidate gets elected is for you to get out and vote.

      The following list is candidates that Local 494’s PAC committee and the
      International office of the IBEW have endorsed. 

      Senate District 18                                             Mark Harris

      Assembly District 19                                        Jonathan Brostoff

      Assembly District 21                                        Jack Redmond

      Assembly District 52                                        Paul Czisny

      Milwaukee County District Attorney       John Chisholm

      US Senate                                                           Russ Feingold

      US Congressional District 4                           Gwenn Moore

      US Congressional District 8                           Tom Nelson
