Both tickets should understand that the most important thing in electing a Vice President is to make sure they are qualified to be President and I don’t know if I would be comfortable with either VP candidate running the APWU.
Mark Dimondstein has the gravitas to be President but there seems to be some bad blood, and he seems to focus on the political at the expense of the grievances. When NBA jobs are vacated the National tries to eliminate them. NBAs are overworked and the grievance procedure is perpetually backed up.
It seems both slates are trying to win New York Metro votes but what about the rest of us. Are these really the best people on each slate for each of the top offices? This is not the best time for this when we are going to interest arbitration but this is an election year. Many of the lower ticket candidates will get our vote regardless of what slate they are on.
