Where was Gerard earlier?

November 4, 2012
Weirton Daily Times

To the editor:

On the front page of the Oct. 27 Herald-Star was a picture of six members of the 2012 Steel Blitz Ohio tour campaigning for the re-election of President Barack Obama at the Karaffa school in Toronto ("Steel Blitz kicks off Ohio tour in Toronto.") One of the six members was United Steelworkers International President Leo Gerard, along with USW International Political Director Tim Waters.

I did not attend every union meeting, so I might have missed it, but I can't remember Gerard showing up in Seubenville at any USW Local 1190 meetings fighting for the jobs of all the RG Steel employees, but he has the time to show up at an elementary school in Toronto to fight for the president's job.
