Teamsters Local 700 is proud to endorse Teamsters Local 700 member and current Cook County Commissioner Luis Arroyo, Jr. for reelection this March. Luis is the incumbent Commissioner for the 8th District and will be on the ballot for the March 20, 2018 primary election in Cook County.

A Teamster for 20 years, Luis worked for the City of Chicago in the Department of Water Management before he took on his new role as Commissioner. He has been a champion of labor and has worked toward saving hundreds of union jobs during his time on the Board. Luis is a lifelong public servant, community activist and deeply cares about fairly representing his union brothers and sisters. He strongly believes that economic growth for working families means stable, safe and vibrant communities.

“We are lucky to have Commissioner Arroyo as a friend and a leader who fights for the working class,” said Teamsters Local 700 President Becky Strzechowski. “The union was proud to support Luis when he first ran for Commissioner and we are happy to support him again in this election. Our members in Cook County are fortunate to have someone like Luis behind them and I encourage them to vote for their union brother.”
