Mary Daniel is wrong on an important issue and is hiding this
from us. Mary’s largest campaign contribution is from the International
Association of Fire Fighters’ Political Action Committee. What will Mary Daniel
do for the IAFF (AFL-CIO) in exchange for this? There is only one answer.
Unions want to get rid of Right-to-Work (RTW) laws in Virginia and they
are investing in Mary Daniel to get that job done.
The IAFF is member organization of the AFL-CIO whose President, Richard Trumka, has aggressively called for the end of Right-To-Work Laws. The Washington Post reported, “Trumka told the union he will stop at nothing short of a complete overhaul of U.S. labor laws and abolition of the Right to Work laws that operate in Virginia and other states.”
The IAFF also wants to replace Volunteer Fire Departments (VFD’s) with career Union Members. They take a very aggressive Anti-Volunteer stance. Their constitution prohibits members from volunteering with local VFD’s. The members who support this aggressively file charges on members who volunteer.
Dave LaRock supports our Volunteer Fire Departments. They bring a sense of community to rural areas, and provide a great service at reduced cost to taxpayers.
Few things are as sacred in Virginia politics and crucial to our economy as our Right-to-Work laws, which bar compulsory union membership to hold a job. Virginia is among 24 right-to-work states and supporters have long argued that the law spurs economic development and affirms personal freedom. Abolishing RTW would threaten our “best state to do business” ranking and be a huge blow to Virginia’s ability to thrive.
Ask Mary why she took $10K from an international union. Don’t be fooled by her moderate façade. Opposing Right-To-Work laws is a pillar of the Democrat agenda, and says more about Mary Daniel than the empty platitudes she presents.
Vote Dave LaRock to support our VFD’s and keep our Commonwealth business-friendly.
