The NCFO announced today that we are endorsing Craig Greenberg in the Democratic Primary for Louisville Mayor. Members of our endorsement committee made the choice after thoroughly reviewing candidate questionnaires.

“Greenberg is the right choice for us because his plan includes a seat at the table for organized labor,” said Damon Lanier, Louisville Metro Housing Authority employee. “He seems eager, responsive, and most importantly, willing to be held accountable to labor. That’s why he earned our support.”

“I have family and friends who grew up in the West End of Louisville, and a lot of my coworkers at Housing Authority have ties to the West End, so for me his work on the West End Opportunity Partnership really affected my decision,” said Chris Laird, Louisville Metro Housing Authority employee.

“I pick winners every day, so I know Craig is the way to go!” said Don Vest, Chapter 541 President and Parimutuel Clerk at Churchill Downs since 1971.

In the public sector, we represent 98 Louisville Metro Housing Authority Maintenance staff and 600 custodial staff for Jefferson County Public Schools.

“I am honored to have the support and trust of the hard-working individuals of NCFO SEIU and will not let them down,” Greenberg said. “I’ve assured them that, as with all members of organized labor, they will not only have a strong voice in my administration but a bigger voice in our city.”

The NCFO’s support reflects confidence in Greenberg’s ability to enact reforms for good government, transparency, and commitment to work with organized labor to build and strengthen our local economy.
