Political Director’s Report – January 2023

New Year Brings New Opportunities

By Antonio Sanchez, Political Director

The year 2023 will be about reaping the benefits of the 2022 election. I am focused on effectively working with the newly elected officials to create projects that will increase the number of job calls to the hall.

My first event with new LA Mayor Karen Bass was a groundbreaking for an affordable housing project that had been stalled for a dozen years. There, Mayor Bass announced that she is expediating the approval of affordable housing projects to help alleviate the high cost of housing in LA and get people off the streets. I have also met with some of the new LA City Councilmembers and their staff to discuss the job creation that comes with the implementation of Measure ULA, energy-efficiency projects and electric vehicle charging infrastructure.

Your Business Manager and I were in Sacramento for the swearing-in of all the new assembly members and everyone is ready to get to work. Let’s combat climate change and increase the housing supply with union labor!
