Lizzie Fletcher, Democratic Candidate for Texas’ 7th Congressional District, Announces Endorsement from Communications Workers of America – District 6
Houston, Texas – Democratic challenger Lizzie Pannill Fletcher announced today her endorsement from the Communications Workers of America – District 6.
“I am proud to earn the support of CWA,” Fletcher said. “Here in our community, and across the country, CWA and other labor organizations have fought for protections that benefit all Americans. The right to organize and to advocate are central to our democracy. I look forward to working together with CWA to ensure that those rights are protected and that working men and women in our community have the representation they deserve in Congress.”
Fletcher’s opponent, John Culberson, has supported an anti-worker agenda in Congress – from his multiple sponsorships of the Repeal Davis Bacon Act to his introduction of national right-to-work legislation in seven different Congresses to his voting repeatedly against raising the minimum wage – John Culberson has worked against Houston families for nearly two decades.
Lizzie is the Democratic nominee in Texas’ 7th Congressional District, a district that Hillary Clinton carried in the 2016 election. CNN, Sabato’s Crystal Ball, and Daily Kos all recently changed Texas’s 7th Congressional District to a key “toss-up” race in their 2018 election rankings. Lizzie is the first woman partner at AZA, a Houston law firm, where she has represented businesses and Houstonians from all walks of life, helping them find solutions to complex problems. She has been recognized by her peers as one of the ‘Best Lawyers in America’ in U.S. News and World Report. She co-founded Planned Parenthood Young Leaders, and currently serves on the boards of directors for Writers in the Schools (WITS) and Open Dance Project.
