The Latest from New Mexico

A Fair Shot for All

By Elizabeth Kricfalusi, OFA New Mexico on


John is a plumber and heating and refrigeration technician in the South Valley of Albuquerque. He’s volunteering to help re-elect President Obama because the President is giving working folks like him a fair shot.

“He’s done pretty well considering all the trouble we’re in. But he’s trying to get us out of it. The other one running for President, I don’t think he really wants to do anything—he wants to go for the rich.”

As with many people during the recession, John lost his job and isn’t sure how he would have made it without President Obama’s extension of unemployment benefits.

Today, John has his own business. “[The President] gives us a break on that too.”

John has the President’s back because the President has his. With only three days left until Election Day, will you join John in helping get out the vote for President Obama? Sign up here: http://ofa.bo/gotv
