Committee On Political Education

Brendan Keogh

Michael Donahue
Vice Chairman

Martin Sweeney

Matthew Lyons
Recording Secretary

The primary function of the Local 2222 Committee On Political Education (C.O.P.E.) is to elect men and women who aggressively work for pro-worker legislation.

The public leaders we elect to office make decisions that affect our lives. These lawmakers shape the laws that govern us, the taxes we pay and the services our government provides. By taking a lead role in federal, state, municipal and local elections, collectively, the labor movement can elect more pro-union candidates and subsequently create a more pro-worker political climate in the Commonwealth.



Congratulations to our Endorsed candidates who won election or re-election on November 5th, 2019. Thank you to our members who went to the polls and volunteered their time in making this year’s election a success.
