I am George Branson and I am the Local President for the Patuxent River Local. I have know Mike since he became our Regional Coordinator. I have needed his help on lots of occasions. I have had to call him or e-mail him, sometimes even on Saturday and Sunday, and at odd hours, definitely not always during regular work hours and he has always responded very quickly. Sometimes calling me immediately after I send an e-mail when I did not expect to hear from him till Monday.
He has got involved and helped me and the Patuxent River Local every time I have asked, he has even called me to offer help when he heard that there was a problem. I consider that above and beyond what his job called for. The best part that I have not mentioned yet is that the Patuxent River Local is a small local, 42 members at last count, he is not doing this to be politically correct or make friends that can help him.
I am convinced he is doing it because he believes that right is right and wrong is wrong, all this in addition to his other duties. This is an attitude that has earned my vote and what support I can drum up for him.
