International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 99 Endorses Magaziner for Congress


Magaziner the Only Candidate with Support from Workers

PROVIDENCE, RI- General Treasurer and congressional candidate Seth Magaziner was today endorsed by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 99.

“Seth has put electricians to work on school construction and clean energy projects across the state and has been one of the strongest allies for working people in Rhode Island,” said IBEW Local 99 Business Manager Joseph Walsh, Jr. “We are proud to support Seth for Congress because he has been a champion for working people- supporting apprenticeship programs, job training programs, and high safety standards- and we know he will take that same commitment to working people to Congress.”

Magaziner has used the Office of the General Treasurer in innovative ways to promote economic opportunity for all Rhode Islanders. From the transformation of school buildings to creating new clean energy programs at the Rhode Island Infrastructure Bank, Magaziner has created over 30,000 good-paying jobs across the state. 

“I am honored to earn the endorsement of the workers represented by IBEW Local 99 and they can be assured that in Congress I will continue to fight for fair wages, strong safety standards and the right for workers to have a voice in their workplace,” said General Treasurer and congressional candidate Seth Magaziner.
