FRESNO – Today, Congressional Candidate and Latino Small Businessman Phil Arballo’s campaign placed signs, which the campaign purchased, in several high visibility areas throughout California’s 22nd Congressional District that state, “Thank You Essential Workers”.
“Essential workers in our district and across the country have continued to work so the rest of us are able to stay home. As they drive to work, these signs communicate that the community supports them, and that we are grateful for the work they are doing.” Arballo said. “To continue to show our support for essential workers, it’s important to recognize we each have an individual responsibility to do our part to slow the spread, by listening to public health experts, staying home, social distancing, and wearing masks in public places.”
The text is red, and blue, with a white background. The color choices are designed to symbolize that all Americans are affected by this crisis, and that the pandemic is not a partisan issue. Below the text are symbols that represent several of the key industries whose workers have been essential to keeping the country on its feet throughout the pandemic, including: healthcare & public health, supermarkets & grocery stores, emergency services & first responders, mail, shipping & logistics, as well as food & agriculture.
The thank you extends to all essential industries, including: healthcare & public health, emergency services, public works, food & agriculture, energy, waste & wastewater, transportation & logistics, communications & information technology, community based government & essential functions, critical manufacturing, hazardous materials, financial services, chemical, & defense.
In Fresno County the signs are located at:
- Friant at 41
- Ashlan at 41
- Shaw, just west of Palm
- Herndon at 41
In Tulare County the signs are located at:
- Highway 65 at Spruce
- Paige at Laspinia
- Highway 65 at Ave 201
The placement of signs by the Arballo campaign comes on the heels of Arballo delivering 200 meals to local hospitals last month in a show of appreciation for healthcare workers.
