Letter from the Campaign Trail

August 12, 2011: I’m writing you from the campaign trail.  I’m in the middle of a Rust Belt Tour that’s taken me through Western Pennsylvania, Ohio and Detroit. 

The response has been overwhelming.  Everywhere I go members tell me Hoffa’s time is up and we need a new General President that will stand up to employers, protect our contracts and benefits and rebuild our union’s power.

I have no doubt we can win this election.  But I’ll need your help.

In a three-way race, it will take 150,000 votes to win.  I got 100,000 votes in the 2006 International Union election. We’re within striking distance of making Teamster history. 

Here’s what it will take to win and how you can help.

I have no doubt that working together we can make win this election and make Teamster history.  Send me a message with your comments and what you can do to help beat Hoffa and rebuild Teamster Power.

In solidarity,
Sandy Pope

P.S.  A huge thank you to all my Teamster brothers and sisters who are contributing their time and hard-earned dollars to this campaign. We’ve launched a nationwide fundraising appeal to ask you to dig deep for the stretch run.  Click here to check it out.  And click here to donate online.
