Labor's Outcomes for City Council Election, 2021

Labor Wins in Both Runoffs!

The Dallas AFL-CIO election effort paid off with double wins in the June 5 runoff election. Our candidates, Carolyn King Arnold and Adam Bazaldua, won with decisive margins.

Labor wins both

All Dallas County results are posted on the Elections Department web site.  During the entire election, Political Director Mariah Warwick organized training and efforts. We contacted thousands of union members. In a time when Austin politicians are trying to curtail voting, we emphasized it. Not only did unions help win a majority of seats on the Dallas Council, we also helped inform and organize a stronger labor movement!



Six Victories, 1 Loss, and 2 Runoffs:

In the first round of 2021 voting, labor's candidate lost in District Eleven. We will be fighting hard in runoffs for Districts Four and Seven through June 5. Our other six endorsed candidates won in the first round. We made thousands of phone calls and publicized our candidates as broadly as we could legally do. On election day, we ran a car caravan to help get out the vote. We held a Mayday/Election Day picnic at Everglade Park.

The Dallas AFL-CIO calls on everybody who supports working families to contact Political Director Mariah Warwick and win!
