Reibman Snags Laborers Local Endorsement

Laborers Local 1174 announced its endorsement of Glenn Reibman for Northampton County Executive yesterday. “Glenn Reibman has a proven record of a strong commitment to project labor agreements and working families,” said Business Manager James Hartman. “His past record and future dedication are the reasons why Laborers Local 1174 is proud to endorse Glenn Reibman for Northampton County Executive.”

“I appreciate the support of local labor,” said Reibman. “The Laborers recognize the thousands of jobs that I brought to the County, and the number of family-sustaining jobs that my Capital Projects produced. They know that I will continue to support local labor and working families as County Executive.”

You have got to be kidding. Reibman's treatment of county employees are the reason the county went from three unions to eleven unions. He screwed them royaly and they threw him out of office. Not one county employee or their family members will forget that he froze their wages and wouldn't even consider a cola.

What the laborers fail to reconize is the thousands of county union jobs this guy screwed up!

Glenn will bring up the rear in this race. Should just drop out now, tell Pawlowski to kiss his azz, and throw his support to Callahan. If this is pumplowski's revenge on Northampton county, he can kiss my azz too!

Actually union employees never had pay freezes. Also the pay freezes for non-union were one year, made up the following year.

More employees lost positions under Stoffa then ever before.

I will be convinced when Reibman gets the support of the local garbage collectors. He has been giving them a lot of business the last few years of his term. Remember those old mid-night paper shredding sessions? Those garbage collectors must have loved him!? Now he needs their backing more than ever!!!

Who else, too? The old Allentown Ambassadors baseball team. Remember the half built stadium that sat there half built for years? Some people ran off with the raw materials that were left there to rot. He could get the support of the baseball team, all of the franchise workers like the peanut vendors, the builders of the stadium, the criminals that stole all of the raw material, and the heavy equipment operators that had to raze the facility to make way for the strip mall and the fireworks business that is there now.

You see, he can get a lot of backers and supporters!
