As the ballots for National Officer positions are reaching our Members mailboxes I would be remiss not to once again identify those candidates our Local has decided to endorse. The Red Bank Local does not do anything regarding this great Union of ours without serious thought, reflection and understanding of our actions. There are some 26 or so contested positions during this election cycle. The majority of those positions will have direct dealings with our Local Union and our Members. The endorsement of a candidate is never taken lightly by our Local.
This election cycle our Members deemed only 4 candidates worthy of an endorsement, they are, Jeff Kehlert for Vice President, Ross Baker for Director of the Clerk Craft, Charles Smith for Director of Research and Education and Chris Howe for Northeast Region Maintenance NBA. I have my own personal opinions on many of the other candidates running for office, including Desi Neurohr who I personally endorsed for National Retiree Director on this website a short time ago and I will vote my conscious regarding the other candidates and gladly pass on my feelings to anyone who asks. Opinions aside, the most important thing you can do this election cycle is cast your vote. Good luck to all and solidarity forever!
