Brothers and Sisters,
It is with great enthusiasm that I offer my support for the reelection of Hamid Ghaffari for Western-Pacific Regional Vice-President.
During my time as a controller, I had the distinct pleasure of serving the membership as Facrep of four different facilities, encompassing ten years. I also served on the labor-relations teams of three different RVPs, and sought the office of RVP in 2000. I have experienced the divisiveness that has encompassed our region, and never thought I would see a time where our differences were set aside for the betterment of our Union. Ham has proven to be that leader who had the ability to bring us together. Ham has always been there for me, a phone call away even as a retired controller. I’ve never questioned whether he has my back.
Ham has proven to me that he deserves another term as your Regional Vice-President.
