Teamsters Joint Council No. 7 100th Anniversary

Teamsters Joint Council No 7 100th Anniversary at San Francisco City Hall Rotunda.

Big night. Great food, drink. Outstanding turnout of elected officials.

Robert Morales and Chuck Mack introduced Mayor Gavin Newsom, Senator Barbara Boxer, Senator Dianne Feinstein, Congressman Tom Lantos, State Senator Carole Migden, Assemblywoman Mary Hayaski, Supervisor Aaron Peskin and Art Pulaski, Executive Secretary-Treasurer, California State Federation of Labor.
The union reemphasized that they want to build the middle class and build the
labor movement.

Robert Morales even suggested that Gavin Newsom would be a good choice for governor.

Other people attending that I saw were John Burton, Tim Paulsen, Mike Casey, Kevin Shelley, Leroy King, Walter Johnson, Ross Mirkarini, Geraldo Sandoval, Assemblyman Mark Leno, Phil Ginsberg, Claudine Cheng, Holly Thier, Larry Martin and Dick Blum. There were many people there I did not know.

There is a strong relationship between City Hall, Gavin Newsom and the Teamster's. Special mention was made of the health plan San Francisco is putting in place, and that San Francisco is not contracting out work and instead is using city employees.

This was a very classy event.
