STATEMENT: Nevada State AFL-CIO Congratulates Democratic Unity Slate on Victory, Emphasizes Fight Ahead
March 4, 2023 LAS VEGAS — Today, the Nevada State AFL-CIO congratulated the Democratic Unity Slate, headed by Assemblywoman Daniele Monroe-Moreno, on its victory in today’s Nevada State Democratic Party leadership election. Executive Secretary-Treasurer Susie Martinez released the following statement:
“I congratulate Chairwoman-elect Daniele Monroe-Moreno and every member of the Democratic Unity Slate for their hard-won victory today to put state Democratic Party leadership back in the hands of the people. The Nevada State AFL-CIO is looking forward to working with our new leaders as we look ahead to the next election cycle.
Make no mistake: 2024 will be pivotal for working families. The right to organize, access to health care, affordable housing and so much more will be on the line. It is clear that margins of victory will be even slimmer than in 2022, and that’s why we will continue to do the hard work on the ground to elect pro-labor leaders in our state. I have no doubt that with our new state party leadership, we will be able to fight and win for Nevada’s workers.”
