A son of two Teamsters and once a Teamster himself, Chuy Garcia has the endorsement of Teamsters Local 727 and my vote at the ballot box.”

Congressman Garcia addressed the audience, thanking Secretary-Treasurer John Coli, Jr, the executive board, and the members for the endorsement. Secretary-Treasurer John Coli, Jr presented Chuy Garcia with a $25,000 check to contribute to his campaign.
