What is unusual about your hometown, workplace or job?

I went first through sixth grade in the same three-room, brick schoolhouse as my father and even had the same teacher.

What does this year’s theme, “Everybody’s Union” mean to you?

We are truly raising the standard of living for all workers – whether they pay dues and realize it or not!

What issues will be important when your Local’s contract expires?

Wages, benefits and pensions. Economics all the way.

What’s your go-to dance move?

Casting for fish with my two left feet!

Every leader has a good tune to walk out to when introduced. What’s your walk-up song?

AC/DC – “Back in Black”

Who would you most like to have dinner with, and why: Jennifer Lopez, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, George R.R. Martin, Liz Cheney, Michael Jordan, or Drake?

I’d like to ask Michael Jordan why he doesn’t spend more time with fans.

What things have you done or hope to do while you’re here?

I hope to participate and contribute input into the proceedings.

Have you yet decided how you will put the convention to work when you return home?

When we return from convention, it’s up to us to share what we learn and the information we receive as widely as possible. We should encourage participation for all members.
