Plumb Celebrates Local Workers Over Labor Day Weekend in Jamestown and Rushford
Labor Day Festivities Highlight the Importance of Prioritizing Our Local Work Force
Jamestown, New York - U.S. Navy Reserve Commander John Plumb, candidate for Congress in New York's 23rd district, celebrated our local workers over Labor Day Weekend by attending the Jamestown Labor Day Festival on Sunday and by marching in the Grand Parade at the Rushford Labor DayFestival on Monday. Both local events were an opportunity to reflect on the importance of looking after our workers in the Southern Tier and Western New York.
"I grew up in the small town of Randolph, just outside of Jamestown, where we know that our working men and women are the lifeblood of our rural communities. It was a privilege to be part of the Jamestown Labor Day Festival and the Rushford Labor Day Parade to celebrate our working families and the many hard-fought social and economic achievements of our working community," said Commander John Plumb, fourth generation Western New Yorker, and candidate for Congress in New York's 23rd district. "I'm fighting to make sure our working men and women have a representative in Congress that is dedicated to looking out for their priorities."
