LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Presidential candidate Kamala Harris will address issues important to local workers in the 2020 U.S. presidential race during UNITE HERE Culinary Union’s town hall in Las Vegas.

Harris will speak to a crowd of 200 union members from Culinary Union Local 226 and Bartenders Union Local 165.

This is one installment of UNITE HERE’s series of town halls featuring leading Democratic candidates in the 2020 presidential race.

Some of the top issues to be discussed are:

  • Creating more good union jobs
  • Healthcare
