  1. In my opinion, I find it amazing we, as union members can’t elect our business agent and our local was taken over much in the way of a 1939 blitzkrieg; but the administration of N.E. Carpenters praises the democratic election process. This seems hypocritical to me. “Stage an intervention.”

    I will not be bullied into voting for Clinton, as I have had enough of lifetime politicians. Enough of handpicked candidates and union appointees. When the union returns my union vote, then they can suggest political candidates to me.

    Also I am surprised not to see Jr. at this function for Local 8.

    Trump for president and Carpenters for democracy. God bless America.

  2. Why would Jr. show up with these scum that dismantled Local 8?
