CLEVELAND, OH – Plumbers Union Local 55 endorses Kevin J. Kelley for Mayor of Cleveland. This is the second union endorsement announced for the 2021 mayoral campaign, both for Kelley.

“This year’s election for Mayor is the most important local election we’ve had in decades and the results will shape the City’s future for years to come,” said Kelley. “I want to thank Plumbers Union Local 55 for placing their confidence in me to lead this city forward as the next Mayor of Cleveland.”
