I am very honored to have the endorsement of the Contra Costa Labor Council
Since 1959 the Contra Costa Labor Council has been the local body of the AFL-CIO and coordinates a regional body for labor cooperation and unity. As a membership organization, the Contra Costa Labor Council serves as a coalition for over 85 labor unions and represents more than 80,000 union members and their families right here in Contra Costa County.
As City Council Member for Antioch I will be dedicated to ensuring that our workers and their families are included in helping to shape the future of Antioch. Together, I believe the right change is to be completely holistic and identify where our budget is not working and reorganize our budget to reflect our values.
I believe having many opportunities for meaningful work with livable family raising wages is crucial to reducing gun violence and the school to prison pipeline.
Meaningful work creates a healthy thriving Antioch.
Thank you Contra Costa Labor Council!
Contra Costa District Attorney Diana Becton
“I met Tamisha Walker over 7 years ago on a night walk to reduce gun-related violence in the city of Richmond. I have had the opportunity to watch her leadership as she advocated for reentry resources for individuals seeking second chances.

I believe that Tamisha will serve the people of Antioch with great integrity, brilliance, and progressive leadership.“
