Old Pueblo Printers' Albert M. Elias

Posted By on Fri, Oct 16, 2015 at 3:48 PM

The Tucson Weekly extends condolences to Pima County Supervisor Richard Elias and his family on the death of his father, Albert M. Elias, who passed away this morning at the age of 86.

From a statement released by the Pima County Democratic Party:

Albert M. Elias was a fourth-generation Tucson native, he was the owner of Old Pueblo Printers, a Tucson staple and strong union shop since 1966. Albert was involved in many community organizations as well as serving on the Tucson Community Center Commission, the Regional Transportation Authority, the Tucson-Pima Arts Council and the Downtown Tucson Partnership.

During his career, Albert supported labor leader Cesar Chavez of the United Farm Workers; while supporting the efforts of local Latino activists to get their fair share of federal funds to improve their homes and the neighborhoods of their people. Albert also supported a landmark lawsuit forcing TUSD to desegregate its schools.

Albert always had been fighting battles against those who seek to use their financial influence to their own advantage – at the expense of ordinary working people.

The Democrats of Greater Tucson recently named their inaugural Albert M. Elias Democratic Business Leader award for his exemplary work and commitment to the community.
The Pima County Democratic Party express our condolences to the entire Elias family on this sad day.

Information on services will be made available.
