John O. Sweety, George and a gaggle of AFL-CIO worthies are due here on November 2nd as part of a mid-west gotv bus tour. First stop is a manufacturing plant that employs 880 Steelworkers and is scheduled to be shutdown and the work moved to Mexico & elsewhere.(seriously).

I told George many months ago to take the Greens seriously. Here in Ohio the Greens have enough potential candidates for jobs like county sherriff, county engineer, county prosector and judge to make things interesting.
