Earlier Tuesday, the Culinary Workers Union Local 226 hosted a canvass launch at its union headquarters on Commerce Street in Las Vegas. The union pushed out what it called “the largest political team in Nevada” with canvassers planning to knock on doors throughout the day to help drive turnout.

“We have hundreds of culinary worker members fired up, ready to go out, knock on doors and deliver votes,” said Ted Pappageorge, secretary-treasurer for the union. “We need to make a statement out there today … We want to make sure that workers’ voices are heard.”

Pappageorge said candidates and canvassers are talking to voters about inflation and affordable housing.

“Out-of-state, corporate, price gouging landlords — somebody’s got to do something about it,” he said, adding the price of housing “is making it tougher for people to own homes and (they are) jacking up rents.”
