IBEW Proudly Supports Stacey Abrams for Governor of Georgia


IBEW President Lonnie R. Stephenson issued the following statement: 

Stacey Abrams has long stood with working families and today, the 775,000 members of the IBEW are proud to stand with Stacey in her candidacy for governor of Georgia.

Stacey Abrams is the kind of leader working people can depend on. She is this country’s foremost champion on voter rights. She has worked to expand Medicaid, fight for criminal justice reform, and help tens of thousands of Georgia families pay off medical debt. If elected Governor, Stacey will continue her fight to bring good, union jobs to Georgia and ensure future generations have opportunities we can only dream of.

Stacey will meet Georgia’s most pressing challenges with grit, determination, and grace. The Georgia Electrical Workers Association and the IBEW international proudly endorse her for governor of Georgia.”
