Glynn Visits Newport News Shipyards, Meets with Union Workers


VIRGINIA—Presidential candidate Kate Glynn visited the Newport News Shipyard today to speak with union workers about how a tough economy and deteriorating American shipping industry is affecting their lives. Glynn, whose grandfather was a ship builder at that very shipyard, assured the workers that she felt their pain.

“We know what it’s like to have to work hard to make ends meet. Unlike some of my opponents, folks like us weren’t born with a silver spoon in our mouths. But you won’t hear us crying. All we want is a chance and a fair shake. And that’s what I’ll do as president. I’ll bring back opportunity. I’ll bring back the belief that, if you play by the rules and work hard, you get to live a safe and comfortable life.” Glynn said.

From the shipyard, Glynn traveled to Hamilton Public School in Washington D.C. to meet with teachers and schoolchildren.
