302 Election Slots Open For November 2nd

November 3rd is rapidly approaching. This election is not only pivotal in the presidential election but even more so locally. Pete Schweyer our current Representative is facing a serious challenger and stands to lose the seat. Pete has been a staunch friend of firefighters and has been instrumental in helping to rebuild the Department. Let’s support our friend get Pete re-elected. To get this done we need to show force. We can show force by handing out support literature at the polling stations. This is a very effective method of supporting a candidate. We get to the voters as they go in to cast their votes. A lot of times this makes a difference in undecided or uninformed voters. We need a lot of members to come out and show Local 302 Allentown Fire Fighters support Pete like he supports us. Do not assume someone else is going to do it, we need everyone. Contact Perreault (484) 892-1787 with your shirt size and availability.–
If you can’t sit at the firehouse kitchen table and explain and justify the money you’re spending on behalf of the union. You Don’t Deserve to lead.
I’m picking up the yard signs Monday for Pete Schweyer so we will start distribution next week. I need guys to help get them out in mostly the soutside and some areas of center city. Pete has been a huge advocate of ours and is apart of why our Department has added new equipment and apparatus over the past few years. He has a viable opponent and we cannot afford to lose him. We need guys to come out and help us get Pete re-elected. Don’t assume someone else will do it. All we ask is two hours or if you have more time available, even better.
