I.U.P.A.T. District Council 6 issued an endorsement to Betty Sutton for Governor on April 24, 2017. The ultimate goal was to help elect a Governor who understood the issues facing our members’ families and all working Ohioans. Betty’s longtime relationship with District Council 6, her lifetime of working on behalf of workers, her impressive list of accomplishments at all levels of Government, and her outstanding judgment on how to handle problems made this an easy choice. We have never wavered in any way on our endorsement or our belief in Betty Sutton.
Today, we reinforce our belief in Betty Sutton’s judgement and her decision to partner with Richard Cordray and run as his Lieutenant Governor. We have always had a great relationship with Richard Cordray and still believe the ultimate goal must be to win in November. When we look at Rich’s record of accomplishments and his understanding of working families’ issues, coupled with Betty Sutton’s belief and support of him, we are proud to announce our endorsement of the Cordray/Sutton team for the next Governor of Ohio.
