LEAP conference remembers “Mozzy”

[+]Enlarge

Gerard “Mozzy” Maciejewski presents donations of cash and checks during the 2012 LEAP conference.

Late Gerard Maciejewski was fund-raising dynamo

At the start of the 2017 LEAP conference, IVP-NE D. David Haggerty gave a special nod to the late Gerard “Mozzy” Maciejewski, of Local 107 in Milwaukee. Mozzy was extraordinarily passionate about his union and the necessity of political involvement. He was well known as a dynamo at raising money for LEAP and did so with great energy and pride. A highlight of his life was attending the 2008 Democratic National Convention as a delegate, referring to the event as “the Super Bowl” of his political involvement.

Haggerty told the LEAP gathering in Washington: “Last October, we lost Mozzy. He worked tirelessly to support LEAP with contributions. He was just an amazing man, a great guy and a dear friend for many years. He will be dearly missed.”
