The Team that Will Work for Working Families
October 4, 2019 (via email)
On November 5th Choose the Team that Will Work for Working Families
Working families are the lifeblood of our community. The MOVING HARRISON FORWARD team of Frank Gordon for Mayor and Lauren Leader and Michael Romita for Town Board believe that smart economic growth starts with the middle class. We believe that workers deserve good paying jobs with the good benefits they deserve. We believe that labor negotiations should be led by elected leaders and not outsourced to lawyers who will string them out indefinitely. We also believe that developers should be required to meet County-wide standards for affordable housing. Working families should be able to afford to live and prosper in Harrison.
Our positive message has been strongly embraced by an overwhelming consortium of labor unions. Among our formal endorsements are: Teamsters Local 456; Building and Constructions Trades Council of Westchester and Putnam Counties; Westchester and Putnam Counties AFL-CIO Central Labor Body; United Association, Local 21 Plumbers/Steamfitters/HVAC of Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess and Ulster Counties; Theatrical Stage Employees Local No. One I.A.T.S.E.; and Utility Workers of America Local 1-2.
Our strong support for workers is summarized in the words of Teamsters Local 456 President Louis A. Picani, taken from their official endorsement. “[Gordon, Leader, and Romita] will continue to prove to the people of Harrison that they will be a strong voice for the rights of working men and women… [T]hese candidates will stand behind their commitment to be a voice for organized labor.”
Harrison’s workers deserve to be treated with honesty and respect and not as political pawns. On November 5th, Harrison will have the chance to support its workers and vote for positive change. We hope you will stand with us.
Frank Gordon, Candidate for Mayor
Lauren Leader, Candidate for Town Board
Michael Romita, Candidate for Town Board
