UFCW Local 9 Endorses Rosenthal in HD-9

  • 0 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Democrat Paul Rosenthal has been campaigning for State Representative Joe Miklosi‘s HD-9 seat since before Miklosi officially declared his bid for Congress. As a result, Rosenthal’s been aggressively rounding up endorsements from across the state – he counts Andrew Romanoff on his supporter list alongside a sizable chunk of the Democratic caucus at the capitol.

Perhaps it’s because Rosenthal’s courted (and received) so many endorsements that today’s news doesn’t come as a surprise:

UNITED FOOD & COMMERCIAL WORKERS LOCAL 7 ENDORSES

PAUL ROSENTHAL FOR COLORADO HOUSE DISTRICT 9

Rosenthal also raises $14,100 to Date

DENVER, January 12, 2012 – Paul Rosenthal, Democratic candidate for Colorado House District 9, has received the endorsement of the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 7.  UFCW Local 7 represents 24,000 members in Colorado and Wyoming in supermarkets, packing houses, food processing plants, barbers and cosmetologists, and healthcare facilities.

“We’re committed to rebuilding the middle class in Colorado, and Paul has shown the leadership and commitment to get that done.  He’ll be a champion for UFCW members and working families throughout the state of Colorado,” said Debbie Olander, Political Liaison for UFCW Local 7.

In addition to UFCW, Rosenthal has received the endorsements of the Former Speaker of the House Andrew Romanoff and over 150 precinct committee people and neighborhood activists within his district.  Elected officials endorsing Rosenthal include Rep. Joe Miklosi, Sen. Joyce Foster, Sen. Pat Steadman, Rep. Mark Ferrandino, Rep. Dan Pabon, Rep. Lois Court, and Denver Auditor Dennis Gallagher.  A more extensive list can be found on Rosenthal’s website.

“UFCW Local 7 is a leading voice in fighting for struggling middle income and working people in our community, and I am honored to receive their endorsement and support in my race,” stated Rosenthal.

Rosenthal, who has prioritized education and putting Coloradoan’s to work by investing in our infrastructure, small businesses, and schools added, “As I knock on doors and talk to our neighbors in Southeast Denver, they tell me they want someone who can work with others to get things done, and I’m that person.  As a teacher, I am committed to making sure we have an economy that works and provides a bright future for all Coloradoans.”

Rosenthal will file with the Secretary of State that he raised a total of $14,100 in 2011.  He has about $10,000 cash on hand.  “I’m very proud of the tremendous support from people in SE Denver, who have funded much of my campaign,” Rosenthal said.

Rosenthal, who lost a primary challenge to Miklosi in 2008, faces a challenger of his own: RTD Director Bill McMullen has also filed for the seat. Despite (or perhaps because of) his earlier electoral losses, however, Rosenthal’s running his campaign exactly the way he should be: he’s garnered nearly every influential endorsement in the southeast Denver district and his fundraising numbers, while not astounding, are nothing to shrug at. Most movers-and-shakers in the area, then, will continue to coalesce behind Rosenthal until the June primary makes him the official nominee.

McMullen won’t be able to generate any momentum in the meantime – Rosenthal’s seized it all already. That’s the way to run a primary campaign.
