The UAW Region 1 this week endorsed Jeremy Moss to serve on Southfield's City Council.
The endorsement is a major boost to Moss’s already aggressive campaign for one of the four City Council seats that expire this year.
"I fully understand the important role organized labor plays in maintaining a strong middle class," Moss said. "The UAW continues to help build our region and I am humbled by their support."
The 25-year-old candidate is a lifelong Southfield resident who has served on staff for Southfield Mayor Brenda Lawrence and two of Southfield's state representatives - Paul Condino and Rudy Hobbs. All three endorse his campaign for City Council.
Currently, Moss is the District Director for Southfield under State Rep. Hobbs in the Michigan House of Representatives.
Also endorsing Moss for City Council: Oakland County Treasurer Andy Meisner, Southfield Treasurer Irv Lowenberg, Southfield Councilman Ken Siver and former State Sen. Gilda Jacobs.
Twelve candidates are running for the four seats in the Aug. 2 primary election. The top eight vote-getters move on to the November general election, when the top four finishers are elected.
