Veteran Missouri Senator Doug Beck (D-Affton) received a standing ovation at his recent fundraiser as he begins his quest for re-election in 2024 as state senator from Missouri’s First District.
Beck, a 34-year veteran member of Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 562, has received the unanimous endorsement of all the area’s Labor Movement.
In welcoming the turnout crowd at his March 16 gathering at Operating Engineers Local 148’s hall, Beck, the Democrat’s assistant minority floor leader, pledged to continue his fight for working families in the state legislature. And given the overwhelming control of Republicans in the Missouri legislature, a fighter is what’s needed, said one guest.
And his experience to continue to be that fighter is clear: his election a state representative in 2016, was followed by his election to the Missouri Senate 2020.
“There is no question that he is a fighter for the working people of Missouri and especially our union families,” said St. Louis Labor Council President Pat White. “If anyone deserves to have the backing of our working families, it’s Doug Beck.”
Senator Beck makes it clear that his platform as a legislator is to defend workers and their rights, promote public education, encourage job creation and fight for affordable health care for all.
