GONGWER: ANANICH ENDORSED (by Local Trades)

ANANICH ENDORSED: The Genesee/Lapeer/Shiawassee Building Trades Council on Monday announced unanimous support for Rep. Jim Ananich (D-Flint) in his pursuit of the 27th District Senate seat left vacant by now-Genesee County Clerk/Register of Deeds John Gleason, a Democrat from Flushing.

Ironworkers Local 25, a member of the council, said they thought Mr. Ananich had the "qualities and integrity that is needed for this position."

Mr. Ananich has been the only person to formally announce running for the seat, though Rep. Woodrow Stanley (D-Flint) has also been said to be considering a run.

"The hardworking men and women of this community helped build our middle-class, and they will be the ones to turn our economy around," Mr. Ananich said in a statement about the endorsement. "I appreciate their support and look forward to standing shoulder to shoulder with them in the fight for more jobs and stronger communities."
