FORT WORTH — Alyson Kennedy, Socialist Workers Party candidate for mayor, and Gerardo Sánchez, running for City Council in the 5th District, filed for the ballot for the May 6 election in the city secretary’s office here Jan. 18. “We will take our campaign program to working people in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and to the rural areas throughout Texas,” Kennedy said. “We will talk about the growing examples of unions that are standing up and fighting for wages, hours of work and safety that enables us to live and have families.” The SWP campaign will explain that out of these growing union struggles, a labor party based on our unions can be organized. “Our campaign supports the massive struggles in Iran against the repressive government and the battle by Ukrainian working people to defend their country’s sovereignty against the Russian government’s invasion,” Sánchez, a member of Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers Local 111, told the press.
