Beautiful scene outside of the local chapter of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers

I was driving past it the other day and saw four Biden/Harris 2024 signs in front of the building!! There was also another sign that read, "IBEW Endorses Biden/Harris"!! This is a pretty red county in Ohio (Lake), so it was an especially beautiful sight.

He deserves the same loyalty from all union members that he shows them.

Even though I’m management, I have only met the best people in the trades. IBEW are done off the best workers I know

I am the proud daughter of an IBEW union member. Dad made a wonderful living for us on Long Island where I grew up in the 50s and 60s. Due to the cold war and propaganda, Dad voted Republican, but he did have picket duty now and then and he deviated once by voting for Jimmy Carter, persuaded by his union brothers. My own life has improved immeasurably since an adjunct union was formed, especially because we now have seniority, which I should have in my 31 years of teaching in a community college! So, I get all the best English courses like literature, public speaking, technical writing, and interpersonal communication. I relate strongly to Jill Biden, for we have the same first name, are the same age, and are loving our careers in community colleges that we are in no hurry to leave.
