Local 85 supports Ohio gubernatorial candidate on Labor Day

BOILERMAKERS FROM LOCAL 85 (TOLEDO, OHIO) express their support for Ohio gubernatorial candidate Betty Sutton as they prepare to march in their city’s Labor Day parade. Sutton is the daughter of former Local 900 (Barberton, Ohio) member, Leo Sutton. Paul McGrew, L-85, stands with Sutton in front of fellow lodge members gathered downtown.

L-85 Business Manager/Secretary-Treasurer Tim Timmons says the lodge endorsed Sutton for governor because throughout her political career she has always “been an advocate for working-class people.” Other Ohio lodges endorsing Sutton include Local 105 (Chillicothe), Local 744 (Cleveland) and Local 900.
