Austin -- CWA District 6 is pleased to announce its endorsement of Democrat Jessica Cisneros for Congress in her run to defeat Texas 28th District incumbent Congressman Henry Cuellar in 2020. Cisneros was recently screened by the CWA Local 6143 political committee in San Antonio. Unlike her opponent, Cisneros supports the crucial PRO Act bill to restore and expand worker power and CWA’s federal bill to protect call center jobs from being offshored, and she will be a much-needed upgrade in Congress on labor issues.
“It’s time for Congressman Cuellar, who has sided with Donald Trump 67% of the time and earned the nickname ‘Trump’s favorite Democrat’ to go,” said Local 6143 Legislative-Political Director Charles Fuentes. “CWA members are excited to support Jessica’s campaign, which is already generating much excitement and building grassroots support for the labor movement. Her support for crucial workers’ rights legislation, background as a human rights attorney, and strong ties to the community will make her a strong ally for CWA members and all workers in Congress, and our members will be doing what it takes to get her elected.”
