The filing deadline to run for political office in Kentucky is weeks earlier this year, but that didn’t stop more than 300 Kentuckians from filing for state and federal political offices Friday, including 17 people hoping to take down U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

See the notice below regarding a Rally and Press Conference in support of members of IUE-CWA Local 84807 next Tuesday, January 14th at 3:30 p.m.   Please share this notice with your members and affiliates and please make plans to attend to show your support for these workers that are getting screwed by Haier and Dart Warehouse Corporation.  I look forward to seeing you! 

In Solidarity,  Bill.
