Ananich Earns Support from IBEW Local 948

Flint, Mich. – State Representative Jim Ananich (D-49th District) added another important endorsement in his bid for the 27th District State Senate seat, earning support from the IBEW Local 948. The Senate seat has been left vacant since former State Senator John Gleason decided to run for Genesee County Clerk instead of finishing the term he was elected to serve.

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers stated, “[we] are proud to endorse your candidacy for the position of State Senator for the 27th District.” The IBEW Local 948 is headquartered in Flint and represents working families throughout Genesee and Lapeer Counties, and most of Shiawassee County.

Ananich expressed his gratitude in receiving the endorsement, stating that “the members of IBEW Local 948 work tirelessly to ensure our schools, hospitals, and plant facilities are powered safely and efficiently. I am grateful to receive this endorsement, and look forward to help continue rebuilding our homes and infrastructure in Genesee County.”

Jim Ananich is currently serving his second term as a Michigan State Representative, and has already earned several other major endorsements in his bid for the open State Senate seat. Other backers include Genesee/Lapeer/Shiawasee Building Trades, Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters, Citizens Against Government Overreach, Teamsters Local 332, and Ironworkers Local 25. The primary for the special election will take place on Tuesday, March 12th.
