2015 COBANC Endorsements

Monday, November 2, 2015
YOUR COBANC Political Action Endorsement Committee met with 34 candidates this election season and is ready to name the women and men that we feel have our (COBANC and labor) best interests as part of their agenda. To best serve our COBANC family, political party was not a factor in our decision making. We even intentionally left out the party endorsements for each candidate because we voted on the person, not the party.
 
You will note that in several instances we have endorsed more candidates than the number of seats available. The committee discussed and debated this practice and concluded that if there were excellent (COBANC or labor) candidates vying for the same position, we would be doing you a disservice by NOT informing you that we felt either candidate would serve us well if elected. Also, please refer to the key below which will briefly indicate why we endorsed each candidate so you have an idea why they received our endorsement.
