CWA Member Speaks Out for Fair Elections in New York State

This week, CWA Local 1108 Executive Vice President Michael Gendron joined a coalition of labor and community groups fighting for fair elections in New York State to speak out for a small donor public financing system that will put elections back into the hands of New York's working people.

"This system of relying on donations from the few – the wealthy and corporate donors – has put too much power in the hands of these few," Gendron said. "We need to adopt a system that gives a plumber or carpenter the same influence as the real estate builders they work for. We need a system that gives an equal voice to a telephone lineman as the CEO of Verizon. We need a system that gives working men and women the means to run for office so that they can represent the communities they live in and fight for the issues that affect everyday people."
