I am so proud of my colleagues who persevered through the 3-year process to unionize Olney Charter. I was with them year one and paid a price for my commitment to the union movement. I am the only union member in the race for the 5th Congressional District and the only one who has participated in a unionization process and protested school closings and charterizations of schools throughout my career. Others were afraid to speak out. I have never backed down. Neither did my colleagues. Way to go guys!
