DALLAS — Gerardo Sánchez, left, Socialist Workers Party candidate for City Council here, submits petitions signed by 222 people — seven times more than the 30 signatures required — to city election manager Parris Long Feb. 10 to be on the ballot for the May 1 election.

“This is important to ensure that working people have a voice in the election,” Sánchez said. “The SWP campaign backs workers’ struggles and calls for a shorter workweek with no cut in pay to spread around the available work to overcome the divisions between workers with jobs and those without.

“Workers are capable of changing our conditions and fighting for a society that represents the interests of working people, not the tiny minority of the capitalist rulers. We will be taking our working-class program far and wide throughout Dallas and the southwest region. Join us!”
