NoVA GOTV Labor Effort Continues to BuildTuesday, October 23, 2012
(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)The labor effort to get out the vote in
Northern Virginia continued to build as nearly
200 union members participated in last
Saturday’s Labor to Labor precinct walks.
Labor-endorsed US Senate candidate Tim Kaine,
along with AFGE President J. David Cox, rallied
the group before they hit the streets. Among
the volunteers was an enthusiastic busload from
the Maryland AFL-CIO, and the Boilermakers
brought its touring RV for more support.
“Door-knockers said they received strong
words of support for Obama and Kaine,”
reports NoVA president Dan Duncan. Precinct
walks and phone banking continue daily out of
the NoVA Labor office (4536-B John Marr Drive,
Annandale 22003) through Election Day.
