Well over a dozen Teamster volunteers spent the afternoon on Saturday talking to voters in and around Walla Walla.
Our group was getting out the vote for Jared Frerichs, a Local 117 member who is running for County Commissioner.
Jared is a military veteran and a Correctional Specialist who works at the Washington State Penitentiary.
"I’ve always felt a deep love and commitment to my community," Jared says. "Many of my values and lessons were formed in the fields, hills, and along the riverbanks of the Walla Walla Valley."
Jared's running on a platform of bringing more living-wage jobs to Walla Walla county, ensuring that residents of the county feel safe, and protecting the environment.
