ROOFERS UNION ENDORSES HILLARY CLINTON FOR PRESIDENT
WASHINGTON, DC—(9/16/15) The Executive Board of the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers voted overwhelmingly to endorse former Secretary of State, U.S. Senator and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton for President of the United States.
“We believe Hillary Clinton is the most experienced candidate in the race for the office of President of the United States,” said Roofers and Waterproofers International President Kinsey M. Robinson. “She has proven herself as a United States Senator, a skilled diplomat and a person who understands the needs of working families. She is committed to American jobs through rebuilding our country and she supports power generation, including nuclear and natural gas. After weighing the options, we believe Hillary Clinton has the most solid plan for lifting our economy and creating good jobs—and policies that work—for the American people.”
“Our members want a President who places a high value on labor, on what we bring not only to the job, but to the economy and to our communities. They want a President who wants to resurrect the American dream where hard work and fair play is rewarded with decent wages and a secure future for their families. I am totally confident that Hillary Clinton will be that President.”
The United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers, founded in 1903, represents 25,000 members engaged in construction and service, maintenance and inspection in the roofing and waterproofing industries throughout the United States.
