MD/DC AFL-CIO Endorses CWA's Jimmy Tarlau for MD State Delegate(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)Long-time union activist Jimmy Tarlau – a Metro Washington Council Executive Board member – was endorsed by the Maryland AFL-CIO at its annual convention last month.  Tarlau, who is the Assistant to the Vice President of CWA, is running for the open seat in District 47A which is being vacated because Jolene Ivey is running for Lieutenant Governor in Maryland. Tarlau has served as a City Councilman in Mount Rainier for the past six years. “It is time for labor folks to run for political office,” he told Union City. “We can’t rely on others to carry our agenda. Things are not getting done in Washington that serve our communities and we now have to look to Annapolis to help solve the problems affecting working families in Maryland.” Tarlau says he hopes to knock on over 2,000 doors in the next few months “and I’ll need to raise a lot of money so I can get promote labor’s program to the whole district,” which includes Chillum, Mount Rainier, Cottage City, Bladensburg, Cheverly and Landover.
