    Gaithersburg, MD - UFCW Local 1994 MCGEO’s endorsement committee has decided to endorse four challengers bidding for seats on the Montgomery County Council, along with one incumbent. The union has not yet settled on a candidate to endorse for County Executive.

    The committee has selected to endorse Dutchy Trachtenberg for District 1; Ryan Spiegel for District 3; Tom Hucker for the open seat in District 5; At-large candidates Beth Daly and Marc Elrich. The committee also chose to endorse Jill Ortman-Fouse for the Montgomery County At-Large School Board candidate.

    The executive board has not yet finalized other endorsements.

    “Our endorsement committee has chosen candidates who we believe will best represent the members of Local 1994 on the Council,” said Gino Renne, president of UFCW Local 1994 MCGEO. “But we also consider their positions on working family issues and issues that affect the vulnerable population in Montgomery County, the people our members serve. We need someone who will stand up for the needs of all County residents.”

    Renne also said that the committee decided that they needed candidates who will work as a team to ensure that adequate resources are spread across the county’s budget to best fund “all public services in Montgomery County” and to protect the high quality of life that Montgomery residents enjoy.

    Candidates are asked tough questions on issues affecting working families. Endorsements are made with the assistance of a multi-employer rank-and-file committee that vets candidates, especially candidates for the Montgomery County Council. The committee interviews candidates, reviews their questionnaires, and sends their recommendations to the executive board.
