The biggest sign they had

by Maribeth Schneber—Kentucky

I met a woman in the field who was a staunch supporter of Steve Beshear, the labor-endorsed candidate for governor here in Kentucky. When I got to talking to her, she told me that she had a house for sale, and she had told the Beshear campaign to put up the biggest sign that they had on her property.

After a while her real estate agent called and told her that no one could see the “For Sale” sign on the house. The woman told me that she then replied, “I don’t care if I have to pay a few more months of the mortgage if it means that Steve Beshear gets elected.” She then offered to come to our office or to a Labor Walk and bake us all chocolate chip cookies for our important and hard work.
