Let’s Go For A Walk This Weekend For New Hampshire Working Families


Brothers & Sisters,
 
 
The polls are getting too close for us to sit this weekend out. We need the help of every member that has two hours to spare before Election Day. In two hours, you can make a difference and help us in our final push to elect leaders that will fight for working families.
 
 
 
I know that we’ve asked a lot of our labor family its allies over the past year. But it has never been more critical for us to engage our fellow union members and make sure they have a plan to vote on Tuesday.

Statement from New Hampshire AFL-CIO President Glenn Brackett on the organization’s endorsement of Former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter

Hooksett – New Hampshire AFL-CIO President, Glenn Brackett, released the following statement on the organization’s endorsement of Carol Shea-Porter in her campaign for New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District.

“The New Hampshire AFL-CIO is proud to announce their endorsement of Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter in her campaign to retake New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District. Throughout her career in public service, Carol Shea-Porter has put New Hampshire working families first. Carol understands the immediate need for local job creation and that many Granite Staters are still struggling to make ends meet. She has stood with us in opposition to policies like the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which, if enacted, would have a catastrophic impact on American workers in every state. The Congresswoman has a proven record of creating local jobs and protecting our workers. During her six years in Washington, she brought construction jobs to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, helped secure crucial funding to rebuild Portsmouth’s Memorial Bridge, increased Pell grants for students, and obtained funding grants for police and firefighters in various communities, including Manchester, New Hampshire’s largest city.

In the general election this November, Carol will be facing Congressman Frank Guinta, or Manchester businessman, Rich Ashooh. Congressman Guinta, has never put the people of New Hampshire before wealthy corporate interests or his own. Rich Ashooh has the backing of New Hampshire’s wealthiest corporations and businesses. No matter which candidate emerges from the extremely conservative Republican primary, both candidates have shown where their loyalties lie, and it isn’t with New Hampshire working families. 

The New Hampshire AFL-CIO supports Congresswoman Shea-Porter because she is the only candidate running in the 1st Congressional District that believes that the wellbeing of New Hampshire workers and their families should not be subject to the business aspirations of a foreign nation or the profit margin of a wealthy corporation. We need a leader representing us that we can trust, and Congresswoman Shea-Porter has earned that trust. That is why we are certain that she will continue to fight for working families in Washington.”
