2024 Primary Endorsements Thundering 36th

Endorsements for the 2024 Primary!


We’ve had an outstanding year of getting to know the candidates who are running for office and will be on our primary ballot in August. A warm thank you to every candidate and campaign who has engaged with us, brought your policy priorities, and your personal stories to us. We are deeply grateful to have an abundance of fantastic people running for office in 2024.


Thank you to the candidates and campaigns who have participated in our 36th events, meetings, and interviews; thank you to our amazing 36th E-Board and our interim Political Director Laura Marie Rivera for a rigorous endorsement process; and a HEARTFELT THANK YOU to ALL OUR MEMBERS and especially our PCOs who participated in our endorsement meeting Wednesday night and who are the ones showing up every day to strengthen our democracy.
