SOUTH BAY LABOR COUNCIL CHOOSES JEAN COHEN TO BE INTERIM EXECUTIVE OFFICER

Last night the South Bay Labor Council voted to hire Jean Cohen as Interim Executive Officer.  Cohen is the Political Director of Plumbers Local 393 and the First Vice President of Labor Council.  She previously served as the Political Director of the Alameda Labor Council.

Last month, after nine years as Executive Officer of the South Bay Labor Council, Ben Field, decided to resign, and the Labor Council began a process of finding a successor, deciding to quickly hire a well-qualified Interim Executive Officer to oversee labor’s upcoming election campaigns. 

“The Labor Council’s primary focus during the next two and a half months will be our election campaigns and Jean is well equipped to manage those campaigns,” said Field, “With the help of Labor Council Political Director Dianna Zamora Marroquin, Jean and the Labor Council are poised to continue our record of campaign success.”
