Communications Workers Endorse Hodges For Attorney General

Wednesday afternoon, the Ken Hodges campaign announced that they received the endorsement of the Communications Workers of America (CWA), Local 3201.

Roger Todd, president of the Albany, Ga.-based affiliate of North America’s largest telecommunications labor union, says that Hodges, the former District Attorney for Dougherty County, is the Democratic candidate he wants to keep Georgia’s working families safe.

"We know the great work Ken Hodges has done for Albany as its District Attorney," Todd said. "And we appreciate Ken’s stellar performance advocating for Dougherty County’s crime victims. We’re proud to support him."

The Communication Workers of America represents 730,000 workers in the U.S. and Canada’s labor sectors, both public and private, and it claims nearly 1,700 chartered local union affiliates.

"I’m humbled by the CWA Local 3201’s endorsement, and I’m grateful for their support," Hodges said. "Every day the local’s hardworking members do their all to keep this state running on track. That’s a lead I’ll be honored to follow as Attorney General."
