World War II Resistance Fighter Prays for Obama, Mark Warner to Win Nov. 4
Julie Hunter, Labor 2008 Virginia communications director, sends us this great story of 93-year-old Margaret Stanton, a retired social worker and AFSCME member. Hunter shows just how communicating with union members and retirees about politics can make a big impact.
Margaret Stanton is a retired social worker and AFSCME member who lives in Front Royal, Va. After receiving a mail piece from the Virginia AFL-CIO explaining that Sen. Barack Obama and former Virginia Gov. Mark Warner were our endorsed candidates, she decided to write a letter.
In her letter, Margaret, 93, explained that she read both of Sen. Obama’s books and her daughter in Connecticut is working on Obama’s campaign.
Margaret believes that the current policies in Washington are “killing the middle class” and hopes and prays Obama becomes president.
