Expressing strong confidence in Audette’s leadership, LIUNA stated: “We trust that you will represent the public with integrity, passion and an unwavering commitment to act in the best interest of our communities.”

LIUNA represents a half-million workers across the United States and Canada who are essential in building and maintaining our infrastructure. Their rigorous apprenticeship programs and commitment to safety and quality ensure that projects are completed to the highest standards.

“I am deeply honored to receive LIUNA’s endorsement,” said Audette. “LIUNA’s members are the backbone of our infrastructure, working tirelessly to build and maintain the systems that keep our communities thriving. From roads and bridges to energy projects and water systems, their contributions are indispensable.”
