Washington State Labor Council
COPE Endorsement ~ May 5, 2012
Heading for the May 5, 2012 Council On Political Endorsements (COPE) by the Washington State Labor Council was an arduous journey. All candidates hoping and wishing for the very important COPE endorsement must meet with numerous endorsement committees from organizations across the State to be nominated and hopefully be placed on the slate of selected endorsements.
Our campaign has been nominated proliferously and more importantly placed on the slate of selected endorsements; here are a couple of the more significant endorsements: The 30th Legislative District Democratic Party, the King County Democratic Party, Martin Lurther King County Central Labor Council, the Pierce County Central Labor Council, IAM 751 ~ Boeing Aerospace Machinists Union, the Washington State Patrol Troopers Association, and the South King County Professional Firefighters, IAFF Local 2024.
All of our endorsements have been singular, meaning no dual endorsements. That is significant because it is a reflection that our campaign is the one that truly reflects those particular organizations' platform of political issues.
I am proud to be endorsed by so many wonderful people and organizations and we are looking forward to gathering more endorsements as the campaign moves ahead.
Best wishes always,
Roger G. Flygare
Candidate for Position 1
State Representative ~ 30th LD
