    Funny, my candidate did not receive a questionnaire as the story indicates. Guess they meant sent out to all candidates who have a D behind their name.

    That’s so shocking!! Congratulations I can’t imagine a union endorsement of a Democrat. Certainly is worth6 of a press release. By the way is your business signatory to a collective bargaining agreement?
