Two important Pierce County races
AGC's BUILD PAC is endorsing incumbent Republican Pierce County Executive Bruce Dammeier (website here) and Republican Pierce County Council candidate Jason Whalen (website here) this election cycle. To learn more about these two candidates view their websites at the links above, and don’t forget to vote!
Help get out the construction vote
To increase voter turnout from the construction industry, AGC of America urges members to communicate the importance of voting to employees. Research shows that employees want to hear from their employers about issues and elections. When messages are delivered properly, the employer is found to be a highly credible source of political information. AGC created the nonpartisan Election Resources website, which can be used to remind employees about the importance of voting and participating in this year's election. Don't worry, the resources will not advocate for the election of any particular candidates. AGC also created an Election Center where individuals can register to vote or check their registration status and view the candidates that will be on the ballot. Check it out and help AGC get out the vote.

If the proposal is adopted, this will be the first time in 20 years that workers’ compensation rates have dropped or stayed steady for four years in a row.
“Our 2021 rate proposal recognizes the toll that the pandemic is taking on employers and workers in our state,” said L&I Director Joel Sacks. “Although our projected workers’-compensation costs are going up, we’re keeping premiums the same by taking advantage of the reserves we’ve built over the years by improving services and reducing disability.” Read more...
