I could go on and on about the man that has become my friend over the past three years, but instead, I am gonna let him do the talking.
Maine AFSCME Local 2011 has endorsed Troy Jackson for Congress, who is running to succeed Rep. Mike Michaud in the Second Congressional District. AFSCME Local 2011 is the first public employees’ union in the State to make an endorsement in Maine’s Second District Congressional race.
"They've been disregarded in other states, and now they've hired them to come to this state and try to pass their own kind of snake oil magic," Jackson says. "But it's just not something that's honest or sincere, and it's just an election type of scam to try and make the governor look better."
"A logger by trade, Jackson understands the challenges that face labor in the State of Maine," Soucy said. "Instead of complaining about these challenges, Jackson ran for office so he could attack them head-on. He is the type of legislator that doesn't wait for you to ask him to do something – he calls you to find out what can be done to improve labor in Maine. That's the kind of person we need in office."
