Greetings sisters and brothers:
Reflecting on this past time, we said our fare-well to two amazing Americans this past week from very different backgrounds and cultures but loved by most of us. Aretha Franklin asked for R-E-S-P-E-C-T and human and civil rights for all. Senator John McCain, a patriot, and a hero that always was fighting for what he believed was the best for our country regardless of political party. This included health care, immigration and respect for all the same values that we are lacking in our country these days. Let’s take a minute and ask our selves what we can do to bring back our middle class our benefits and our grassroots union solidarity that made us strong and respected by all.
Now there is a lot we can do. The midterm elections are coming up November 6. We have a nominee for Governor; Gretchen Whitmer, who will work for us to repeal the hurtful pension taxes, imposed by our current governor. She will work to resolve our water issues and our crumbling roads. I’m going to need your help phone banking, distribution of signs and any help you can give us. You also need to elect representatives that will be there to support her on our working families agenda.
Please come out and vote on November 6, or absentee vote before that by checking with your local City or township clerk. If I can help you in any way please contact me at the Union Hall at 517-372-4626 and remember that we need your help in all capacities. Phone banking Monday through Friday 10-4pm starting the last week of September. If you would like to help with phone banking, please contact me.
Thank you in advance for all your support love, peace, and justice. At your service in Solidarity
