Our union stands today on the brink of unprecedented change. We fought for a historic, groundbreaking contract; we received one that left many with a sense of deep dissatisfaction. And while this past contract campaign has undoubtedly shown the strength of our solidarity, it has perhaps cast our shortcomings in high relief against the difficulties that we face. I have served on this chapter’s executive board for the past three years, and have been active on all fronts of our struggle. If elected, I pledge to devote myself to the steering of a transparent, democratic, and efficient leadership in service to the rank-and-file.
