The Iron Workers Local 7 has endorsed Gary Christenson in his bid to be the next mayor of Malden, his campaign announced this week.

In an announcement the 3,300 member union, which counts about 160 in the Malden area, cited Christenson's experience handling budgetary issues and his "knowledge of how good municipal goverment can work," according to a statement by Christenson's campaign.

"We believe that you get the big picture and will be a strong advocate for the working families," wrote Local 7 President William Keegan, in a letter quoted by Christenson's campaign.

According to the campaign, Christenson met with union officials last week to discuss professional standards, safety, and worker protection programs that the union provides.
