Sun., 4:41pm: Mauro Cantalamessa gets union endorsement

WARREN — Mauro Cantalamessa, the Democratic candidate for Trumbull County commissioner in November, has gotten the support of the Mahoning-Trumbull AFL-CIO Labor Council.

Cantalamessa’s opponent, Republican J.D. Williams, isn’t so much upset about not getting the group’s endorsement as he is over not being given the chance to speak to the council; he claims he was never given the opportunity to request their support of his campaign.

Williams said he the labor council “turned their back on their union brother, which is me.” Williams belongs to the Air Line Pilots Association, a group of the AFL-CIO.
