Once again there is an election coming this fall. We are in the process of meeting candidates for Dubuque County Supervisor. There are 7 Democrats and 1 Republican running for 2 seats. The Primary Election is June 3rd. Local 704 has endorsed Dave Baker. Dave has been involved in the Building Trades for over 30 years. It would be beneficial to have someone from the trades in the courthouse.
The last several projects bid at Mercy Hospital have gone to a contractor not signatory with Local 704. If possible we would encourage our members to patronize the hospital that hires our contractors/members(Finley). Thank You.
