On Historic Nomination: She’s With Us and We’re With Her!
Washington, D.C. (June 8, 2016) – Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement now that Secretary Clinton is the Democratic nominee for President:
With Tuesday’s results, Secretary Hillary Clinton has both secured the Democratic Party’s nomination for President and her place as a trailblazer in the history of this nation. Her nomination and future Presidency will be a legacy for the next generation that builds on the promise and values this nation was founded on.
On behalf of the LIUNA General Executive Board and the half-million hard-working men and women of LIUNA, we couldn’t be more proud to support the first woman to have ever won the Democratic nomination and we couldn’t be more determined to help her win this election.
For LIUNA members, “She’s with us” and “we’re with her” aren’t just catchy phrases. We’re with her because not only is she an extraordinary woman but she is the candidate whose record, experience, ideals, and policies will strengthen and safeguard our nation.
We share Hillary Clinton’s vision of a strong, proud, and united nation where hard work is rewarded and everyone has the opportunity to share in economic prosperity and to experience the American dream.
LIUNA members turned out by the thousands at events across the nation to help make this nomination possible and are fired up, energized, and mobilized to work tirelessly to make history again in November.
