U.S. Navy Reserve Commander John Plumb, a candidate for Congress in New York’s 23rd district, celebrated local workers over Labor Day Weekend by attending the Jamestown Labor Day Festival on Sunday, and by marching in the Grand Parade at the Rushford Labor Day Festival on Monday.
Both local events were an opportunity to reflect on the importance of honoring workers in the Southern Tier and Western New York, Plumb said.
“I grew up in the small town of Randolph, just outside of Jamestown, where we know that our working men and women are the lifeblood of our rural communities,” Plumb said in a press statement.
“It was a privilege to be part of the Jamestown Labor Day Festival and the Rushford Labor Day Parade to celebrate our working families and the many hard-fought social and economic achievements of our working community,” he said.
Plumb added, “I’m fighting to make sure our working men and women have a representative in Congress that is dedicated to looking out for their priorities.”
The New York State AFL-CIO recently endorsed Plumb, whose other endorsements include: International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers; United Steelworkers; United Food and Commercial Workers; New York State Public Employees Federation; Civil Service Employees Association; New York State United Teachers; International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers; International Union of Painters and Allied Trades; Office and Professional Employees International Union; Western New York Council of Communication Workers of America; and International Brotherhood of Teamsters.
