May 10, 2014 - Supervisor Terry Lamphier has received endorsements for his re-election as Nevada County District 3 Supervisor from the Laborers Local 185 Northern CA. District Council of Laborers, the Northern California Carpenter's Regional Council and the California United Homecare Workers Union Local 4034. Lamphier believes strongly in the importance of work that provides a living wage.

Joseph Imbach, area representative for the Carpenters Council said "We have been supporting local candidates who exhibit and practice respect for the workers of California and foster programs for fair pay and working conditions. Supervisor Lamphier is one of those public servants."

The carpenter and labor organizations have members working on the Dorsey Drive interchange project. Supervisor Lamphier, a 35 year licensed building contractor, met with representatives of the Laborers Local 185 at the site recently and was impressed with the quality workmanship and their dedication to safety.

As to the homecare workers, Lamphier said "Homecare workers work long hours taking care of elderly and infirmed citizens, earning little more than minimum wage. Cooking, cleaning, bathing, driving to doctor appointments are critical needs for many of our citizens."

Supervisor Lamphier was elected to the Board of Supervisors in 2010 and appreciates Nevada County's public and private workers and is a strong advocate for jobs that pay a living wage. His human services committee work includes:

• Nevada County Mental Health Advisory Board (vice chair)
• Sierra Hospital 5150 community crisis team
• Palm Tree Group (at risk youth)
• Yuba/Nevada Housing Authority
