As Momentum Builds, Steve Bieda Earns Two More Union Endorsements for his Campaign for Macomb County Clerk/Register of Deeds
Bieda Will Provide the ‘Strong Leadership and Progressive Change’ that Macomb County Needs Right Now
WARREN, MI — State Senator Steve Bieda (D-Warren) clearly has the momentum in the Democratic primary for the Macomb County Clerk/Register of Deeds race and today was endorsed by two more unions. Iron Workers Local 25 and the Warren Professional Fire Fighters Union, IAFF Local 1383, are both standing with Steve Bieda.
“The residents of Macomb County need strong leadership and progressive change which can be delivered by a capable person such as you. We at Iron Workers Local 25 believe you are an advocate for the working men and women in Michigan and support in assisting those who have the best interest of organized labor in mind. Our local union will champion you in any way that we possibly can in the upcoming election,” said Dennis A. Aguirre II, President and Political Director of Iron Workers Local 25.
In his more than 13 years serving in the Michigan House and Senate, Bieda has been a leader on issues important to working people and unions and helped lead the fight against Right to Work and the prevailing wage repeal. Bieda’s campaign for Macomb County Clerk and Register of Deeds has been endorsed by more than 40 local leaders and unions.
“It is a great pleasure that the Warren Professional Fire Fighters Union, IAFF Local 1383, endorses Steve Bieda for Macomb County Clerk and Register of Deeds. We believe that you will continue to honorably serve the citizens of Michigan, and the interests of the men and women employed in the Fire and Emergency Medical Services, who have made the protection of life and property their life’s work. We look forward to working with Steve in the future,” said Joe Roth, Secretary of Warren Fire Fighters Local 1383.
Bieda was named MIRS’ 2017 “Michigan Democrat of the Year.” He has been a leader on holding politicians to high ethical standards, fighting foreclosures, and protecting and strengthening the right to vote.
“I am so honored to have earned the support of both Iron Workers Local 25 and the Warren Professional Fire Fighters Union. Fighting for labor and middle-class families has been my life’s work. After talking with thousands of voters in Macomb County, it’s clear that people want real change and a Macomb County Clerk they can trust. I will run the Clerk’s Office by the book and I am heartened that support for my campaign is growing every day,” said State Senator Steve Bieda (D-Warren).
Bieda currently represents the 9th State Senate District that includes the communities of Center Line, Eastpointe, Fraser, Roseville, Warren, and a portion of Clinton Township, and has been a State Senator since 2011. From 2003 to 2008, Bieda served as State Representative for the 25th State House District, representing Warren and Sterling Heights.
