The 4th of July. A moment in our history where a seemingly impossible idea took shape by the will and efforts of many who believed in freedom and liberty. It was the drive and sacrifice of these individuals that worked towards the purpose of bettering the whole that formed our Country. Their efforts to secure a life worth living for their families and countrymen are the reason we are here and the reason we can govern ourselves through the election of individuals who we believe are most representative of our ideals as a people.
Within the next weeks, your AME representatives will begin interviewing candidates for political races that will have a direct impact on your working life. We will take the time and care to ensure that these representatives will be just that; representative of you as a working member of the government. We will need to be sure that they will hear your voice and act on your behalf. Through this process we will endorse those candidates that will most positively impact your working conditions, health and safety, and the community we all serve.
Great efforts were made by so many individuals to protect this Country. Great efforts were made by so many before us to create Unions and what they stand for; many individuals working for the betterment of the whole. We will do our part in screening those seeking your support this November and ask that you do your part at the ballot booth.
United We Bargain, Divided We Beg
And always remember, Suffolk County Works Because We Do!
