From the Obama campaign today:
CLEVELAND, OH – Sonny Nardi, President of Teamsters’ Local 416, today endorsed Barack Obama for President, citing his 20-year record of standing up to special interests and fighting for economic fairness.
“Barack Obama began his career in public service helping to restore opportunity to a community that was devastated by a steel plant closing, and he has been fighting for economic fairness ever since,” said Nardi.
“The American Dream is getting out of reach for too many working families in Ohio, and we need a President who has stood up to special interests and fought for the middle class throughout their career. Barack Obama believes that unfair trade agreements like NAFTA were the wrong policies for American workers, and he has proposed the Patriot Employers Act which would end tax breaks for corporations that outsource American jobs and encourage corporations to create good-paying jobs here in Ohio. He passed legislation that reduced the grip of corporate lobbyists over the legislative process, expanded health care coverage to 150,000 thousand Illinois residents, and opposed the bankruptcy bill which has made it harder for many Ohioans to climb their way out of debt.”
