Teamsters Local 492 endorses Tim Keller for Mayor of Albuquerque
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Local 492 of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters has endorsed Tim Keller for Mayor of Albuquerque, the union’s Principal Officer announced today.
“Tim Keller is exactly what Albuquerque needs,” said Walter R. Maestas, Principal Officer of Teamsters Local 492. “Throughout his career as an elected official, he has shown a commitment to working people and their families. He is going to take that commitment with him to city hall and put our local businesses and their workers ahead of outside interests. Teamsters are happy to be endorsing Tim for Mayor of Albuquerque.”
Keller said the next Mayor of Albuquerque must do more to include local businesses and their employees in the city’s economic plans.
“The current mayoral administration is missing opportunities to bring local businesses and workers to the table to solve our economic problems,” said Keller. “As mayor I will work with unions like the Teamsters to make sure their concerns and ideas are a part of the discussion about how to create more jobs for our businesses. I am very honored to be getting their endorsement.”
