Mike Aguirre has won an endorsement from the Cement Masons Local 500/Area 744, a local union that represents cement masons and finishers.
The incumbent city attorney also has the backing of three other local unions, the Laborers International Union of North America, Local 89, the United Auto Workers and the United Farm Workers.
“The Cement Masons know that Mike Aguirre is the best choice for the working men and women of San Diego,” union leader Jamie Barton said in a release issued by the Aguirre campaign.
Incidentally, the press release for the cement masons endorsement is the first press release to be sent out by Aguirre’s new campaign manager, Steve Rivera, who I met with this morning.
Actually sending out press releases when Aguirre wins an endorsement is just one of many improvements Rivera promised would be coming out of Aguirre’s campaign in coming months. Previously, I’ve just gotten a breathless phone call from Aguirre telling me he’s won an endorsement.
That’s quite a contrast to Jan Goldsmith’s campaign, which sends me a press release for each endorsement, usually e-mailing me the same press release two or three times.
