Angel Perry, Executive Vice President of CWA Local 3108 in Orlando, is running to represent the 50th District in the Florida House of Representatives. The seat will be vacant in 2022 due to term limits.
Perry says that she found inspiration for her union work and public service in her parents, who were New York state employees and proud union members. While serving as a shop steward, she sought out more opportunities to get involved. Perry became a delegate to the AFL-CIO's political endorsing convention where she screened candidates who were seeking endorsements, lobbied for pro-worker legislation, and worked to elect endorsed candidates.
"My passion is helping people," said Perry. "Now, more than ever, people need someone who represents them with a voice that is clear that they know belongs to them. I can help with that."
