I wanted to thank everyone who has participated in the Political Drawing Contest, which is a key component of our work strengthening the OPCMIA’s political infrastructure. This contest is just the start of many programs to engage our base and promote our union values in the world of politics. Be on the lookout for more political incentive programs. Feel free to ask your local Political Officer of any opportunities you can take part in.

There were many designs to review over the last few weeks and all were very well put together. The one that I felt best encapsulates our organization came from Local 528, Seattle, Washington. The winner of this Political Drawing Contest is Lisa Laizure. I want to thank you for the designs you submitted and will now be representing the Political Watch Group from here on out.

Congratulations on your hard work and imaginative design.

Fraternally yours,

Daniel E. Stepano
General President
