The following is a list of candidates IUOE local 542 District 3 is endorsing:
Lackawanna County and surrounding areas:
Marty Flynn (D) State Senate – 22nd district
Page Cognetti (D) Scranton City Mayor
We realize that while this a primary election, and we typically don’t endorse candidates until the General election, Marty Flynn’s senate race is a special election. This will be for the seat vacated by John Blake. The importance of this election for future UNION work in the area cannot be overstated! Please get your family and friends out to vote in support of Marty Flynn. In addition to Marty Flynn, Page Cognetti has demonstrated a willingness to work with the trades on future projects in the city. Page deserves our support as well.
Stephanie Salavantis (R) - Judge Court of Common Pleas
Tarah Toohill (R) - Judge Court of Common Pleas
Michelle Bednar - Luzerne County Controller
These candidates have incredible supporters of Local 542 and unions in general. We ask that all of our members get out and VOTE in this extremely important election.
Pennsylvania Supreme Court - Judge Maria McLaughlin (D)
Pennsylvania Superior Court - Judge Timika Lane (D)
Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court - Judge Lori Dumas (D) & Judge David Lee Spurgeon (D)
Thank you for supporting these endorsed candidates and more importantly your local.
