In 2017 Braxton Winston, a democrat, was elected as an at-large member of the Charlotte City Council. Braxton is a proud member of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Union. Having a union member on the City Council is a huge advantage to the local labor movement. We were fortunate to have Braxton visit us at Victory Lodge 1725 last year to talk about his run for the council, his history and involvement in Labor Unions and what he hopes to achieve while in office. The featured image above was taken when Braxton was speaking at our Local Lodge.
