JOEY MERRICK, VINCE BELTRAMI WANT MEMBERS TO CALL ON BEHALF OF  KELLY MERRICK, ZACK FIELDS AND …

The last week of the primary election season is when fliers hit mailboxes and social media news feeds at a blistering pace.

In the flier above, laborers who are under the watchful eye of Joey Merrick, president of Laborers Local 341, are invited by Merrick and AFL-CIO President Vince Beltrami to help elect Merric’s wife Kelly, who is running in the Republican primary for District 14.

Working the phone bank this weekend might be a condition of getting a job in the future. Merrick will surely be keeping tabs on who attends this “get-out-the-vote-for-my-wife” event.

Merrick and Beltrami also invite you to make phone calls to help elect Zack Fields in District 20. Fields, a loyal Democrat, is a labor organizer for Laborers 341. That means he reports to Joey Merrick.

And if you’re interested, you may also make calls to get out the vote for Nancy Dahlstrom, running for Dan Saddler’s Eagle River seat, and Jim Colver, who is Joey Merrick’s pick to replace George Rauscher for District 9.

Laborers who know what’s good for them will show up and make the calls, as ordered. The prevailing wage is pro bono.
