2016:  I am delighted to announce that I have been endorsed by the local chapter AFSCME State Workers Union. I am honored to receive this recognition and, when elected, I will be certain to include their positions in my decision making. Since the days of the Robber Baron, union labor has been at the forefront, serving the public good, and balancing powers through collective bargaining. Thank you AFSCME for this endorsement; I will work to make you proud.
