Union leader Destiny LeVere Bolling announced today the endorsements of the American Postal Workers Union Local 199 and the Office of Professional Employees International Union Local 334 in her bid for Virginia’s House of Delegates – District 80.
“Destiny is exactly who we need in the House of Delegates to stand up for worker’s rights across Virginia,” said Thomas Brown, APWU Retiree. “Her record of fighting for family-sustaining wages and benefits, as well as better working conditions, is unmatched. We are proud to put the full support of our members behind her.”
“Our local could not be more proud to endorse one of our own for the House of Delegates,” said Julie Hunter, President of OPEIU Local 334. “We know Destiny as not just a union leader but as a union sibling. She cares deeply for union members and their families and embodies the values and experience to be a true champion for working people in the General Assembly. Destiny is also someone whose passions include mentoring young people and ensuring they have the guidance and access to resources to thrive. The knowledge of what young people face day to day in their communities is a perspective desperately needed in the General Assembly. OPEIU Local 334 enthusiastically endorses Destiny LeVere Bolling for House District 80.”
“I wake up every single morning fighting for workers in every corner of our Commonwealth, and I’m so proud to have these unions supporting my run for Delegate,” said Destiny LeVere Bolling. “If elected, I will bring that passion and commitment to Richmond – focusing on ensuring every worker has access to equitable safety and health protections on the job, protecting hard-fought minimum wage increases, and working to amplify the strong and united voice of workers in the workplace, and more.”
