Los Angeles/Orange County Building and Construction Trades Council Endorses Dr. Asif Mahmood’s Congressional Race

Apr 26, 2022

TUSTIN — Today, the major labor organization LAOC Building and Construction Trades Council announced its endorsement of Dr. Asif Mahmood for Congress. The Council is an affiliate of the AFL-CIO and consists of 48 local unions and district councils in 14 trades, representing more than 150,000 skilled individuals.

“Dr. Mahmood will be an outspoken advocate for working families in CA-40,” said ___________. “Through his work as a physician and philanthropist, Dr. Mahmood has shown that he understands families’ needs and will make them a priority in Congress. We look forward to the great things he does in office.”

Mahmood has based his life work on a single principle instilled in him by his parents: that helping others is our highest calling. He prides himself on his advocacy work in Southern California. Outside of his practice, he volunteers with UNICEF and free clinics, allowing him to meet people from all walks of life; he has seen the daily struggles many people face firsthand and will fight for them in Congress.

The LAOC council joins the growing group of state, federal, and Orange County leaders supporting Dr. Mahmood’s campaign. They include:
