In a hall packed with over 400 New England members, five Sisters were among the ten rank-and-file attendees that took the stage to endorse Mayor Marty Walsh for reelection. The Sisters were Ziven Drake of Local 56, Vi Davis of Local 67, Annamaria Edwards of Local 33, Elka Gibbons of Local 33, and Liz Skidmore of Local 118.
In delivering their endorsements, members spoke about Mayor Walsh’s commitment to good jobs, support of the Building Pathways pre-apprenticeship program, and the focus on building more affordable housing. Of course, having a Union construction worker as Mayor was part of the commentary as well.
Taking their support of Mayor Marty Walsh to the next level, New England Sisters posted two videos from the event. One features Sisters describing the Mayor’s support for Unions – CLICK HERE; the other features Local 56 Piledriver and Veteran, Ziven Drake, describing the Mayor’s support – CLICK HERE.
