Will-Grundy trade union endorses Foster for reelection in 2020

Last week, U.S. Rep. Bill Foster announced that the Will-Grundy Counties Central Trades and Labor Council endorsed him for reelection to the House of Representatives in the 11th Congressional District.

The labor union unanimously endorsed Foster, D-Naperville, because of his “accessibility and continued support of the working people in the 11th Congressional District,” according to a news release.

“I’m thrilled to be supported by the Will and Grundy Counties Central Trades and Labor Council,” Foster said in the release. “I will continue to stand with working families in the Illinois 11th District and across the country.”

The congressman has also recently touted his support from the Fox Valley Building and Construction Trades Council, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund and several state and local officials from the Will County area.

Foster is seeking his seventh overall term in the House of Representatives in the 2020 election. The Harvard-educated Ph.D. physicist and small-business owner first won a seat in Congress in 2008 in a special election to replace former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert.

Progressive Will County Board member Rachel Ventura, D-Joliet, is challenging Foster in the primary election.

The Illinois primary election will be held March 17.
