Richard Louis Brown’s Local 1000 Candidate Nomination Statement:
I will deliver comprehensive and inclusive leadership as your president without charging Local 1000 a salary stipend.
As your leader, I will demonstrate courage, integrity, vision and transparency in unifying our Union membership into one class with the same voting rights and dues.
I will work tirelessly for significant change that includes:

• Increasing union membership through social media
I earned a bachelor’s degree in finance from Arizona State University.
