Letter to the editor: Tammy Baldwin deserves your vote

By DAVE RYNES

President, AFGE Local 1882, Fort McCoy, Wis.

Next week is one of the most important elections in the history of our country and in the history of labor — and that’s why we need to support Sen. Tammy Baldwin’s reelection to the U.S. Senate.

Since 2016, working people in the United States have been under attack. Now more than ever, we need leaders in Congress who will stand up to the administration to protect workers, unions, and America’s middle class. And that leader is Sen. Baldwin.

For nearly 25 years now, Tammy Baldwin has served and represented Wisconsinites proudly, first as a member of the Wisconsin State Assembly, then as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, and finally, for the last six years, as our senator.

Throughout her years of public service, Sen. Baldwin has remained true to who she is and has always fought to protect workers in our state and our country. She’s been a friend to our union — the American Federation of Government Employees — has earned a 100 percent voter rating three times since joining the Senate, and votes in favor of America’s workforce 93.4 percent of the time.

In just the last two years, Sen. Baldwin has opposed President Trump’s corporate-enriching tax cuts and voted against repealing the Affordable Care Act, saving thousands of lives in our state in the process. She supports our veterans by fighting for a fully funded and staffed VA and works to ensure the Social Security Administration can process and deliver benefits to those who need them most.

Sen. Baldwin has served admirably at every level of government. She works tirelessly to support her constituents, and she will stand up to the union-busting, democracy-busting administration until we can vote them out, too.

That’s why I’m proud to support her today, and I call on all my union sisters and brothers to do the same. Next week we can make a real difference in the future of our country, and I hope you join me in making sure Sen. Tammy Baldwin makes it a bright one.
