Regardless of your political affiliation, the climate of tomorrow’s Presidential election has been one that will be remembered for some time. We have seen history in the making with the first female candidate nominated by a major political party for President of the United States. We also have witnessed a candidate who never held an elected office, coming from corporate America and nominated for President by the GOP. As women and men who have to work for wages and our standard of living, we must pay close attention to what is being said and more importantly the past records of those that are running for the highest office in the land. We cannot afford to be swayed by nifty slogans, such as “Make America Great Again”. Nor do we need to engage in negativity about one’s sex, religion, ethnicity, or immigration status. We need to hear about policy and legislation that will;

* Build our infrastructure * Improve public education

* Make both college and healthcare affordable

* Increase wages for everyone

We have to be confident that the person we vote for has the will, skill and ability to accomplish those goals. You must believe and trust that the person you are voting for can sympathize with workers from all walks of life, public sector and private sector, both highly skilled and low wage workers. I implore you not be fooled by falsehoods or slanted views aired on social media without checking the facts. Take some time to examine each nominee’s record, each nominee’s experience, their character, as well as their stance on union issues. The choice should become very clear. Vote for Hillary Clinton for President!


Fred Wright, DC 47 President
