Operating Engineers 324 congratulate endorsed candidates on Election Day victories

BLOOMFIELD TWP., Mich. – The Operating Engineers 324 (OE324) today congratulated three candidates they endorsed for wins across the state on Election Day.

Earlier this year, the Operating Engineers endorsed three key candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to Michigan’s operating engineers – the highly-skilled workers who run the heavy equipment and machinery needed to keep Michigan’s economy running. All three were victorious, including:

Sara Cambensy (D-Marquette): In Michigan’s 109th House district, Rep.-elect Sara Cambensy was elected to serve Michiganders in the central Upper Peninsula.

“On behalf of the Operating Engineers 324, I want to congratulate Sara Cambensy on her election to the Michigan House of Representatives,” said OE324 president Ken Dombrow. “Through her commitment to protecting and promoting interest in Michigan’s skilled trades, Rep.-elect Cambensy will serve her constituents in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula well. “

Andy Schor (D-Lansing): Former state representative Andy Schor won election yesterday as mayor of the City of Lansing.

“Our congratulations go out to Mayor-elect Schor on his successful campaign to serve the Lansing community,” Dombrow said. “While representing Lansing in the Michigan House of Representatives, Andy Schor has been a dependable fighter for Michigan’s building trades, and Michigan’s operating engineers look forward to his continued partnership as Mayor of Lansing.”

Derek Dobies (Jackson): In Jackson, city councilman Derek Dobies was elected to serve as the city’s mayor.

“Congratulations to Mayor-elect Derek Dobies for his recent election to serve the people of Jackson,” said Doug Stockwell, business manager for OE324. “Derek has earned their support as city councilman and will serve Jackson’s skilled workers well as he continues his work to grow Jackson’s economy.”
