On Labor Day, we take the opportunity to celebrate all the efforts of American labor forces. We also have the opportunity to recognize those people who are allies of organized labor.
Gov. Tom Corbett — with his support of comprehensive highway, infrastructure and transportation funding and his continued promotion of natural gas production — is the Laborers’ District Council of Western Pennsylvania choice for governor. Also, in spite of unfortunate, misleading information regarding education funding, he continues to allocate more money for schools and education than recent previous governors of Pennsylvania.
Four years ago, we did not endorse Mr. Corbett. However, because of his bipartisan approach since that time, he has taken politics out of many issues and reached across party lines to do the right thing for the working laboring men and women.
Tom Corbett has earned our endorsement. He has dug it out of the dirt with hard work and, most of all, with character and integrity. We are proud to stand with him on Labor Day and look forward to his future success.
