Why We Support Him
Cooke is second generation union -- his father was a union Longshoreman and Cook was a New Castle County Police Officer for 30 years and is presently Fraternal Order of Police State Lodge Chaplin.
Cooke's union background has made him a strong advocate for creating and expanding pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship programs so that Delawareans can get the skills training they need to jumpstart their careers. He is also a public supporter of the Port of Wilmington expansion, which will provide new job opportunities for our membership.
Our choice is clear, and we choose Franklin Cooke.
