Gurr Endorsement : Sid Solomon
Sid Solomon for Eastern RegionAL Vice President
To all my AEA brothers and sisters,
I’m supporting the candidacy of Sid Solomon for Eastern Regional Vice President.
I’ve been an Equity Member for twenty-four years, working and living in the Western, Central, and Eastern Regions in pretty much equal amounts. Over the last few years, since moving to New York, I’ve increased my personal commitment to Equity. I’ve spent a lot of time in the room observing the work of our councilors in both national and Eastern Regional sessions. I’ve also had to privilege to work alongside our electeds and other member volunteers on five committees and the Equity 2020 initiative.
Several old friends happen to serve on council and I’ve started many new friendships within the council room.
And, here’s the deal:
All the people in that room? They’re all good people fighting the good fight.
But, elections are about making choices and you have the opportunity to choose who you believe will be the very best at fighting that good fight.
Personally, I’m voting for a mix of old hands and newer blood. Institutional memory is important, and so are fresh eyes and forward thinking. I’m also voting for people who share my values but whose minds work differently or—often—better than mine.
One of the best minds we have on council is Sid Solomon. It’s a real priority of mine that we keep him on council. This year Sid is seeking election as our Easter Region Vice President and he has my full support.
The shortest version of my reasons why? He embodies the Equity 2020 goals: a union that is more Aggressive, more Inclusive, and more Responsive.
I encourage you to check out Sid’s record, his background, and his commitment to the entirety of our union. He’s got a great website set up at sidforaea.com.
