Teamsters Endorse Tom Wolf For Governor

Pennsylvania Teamsters Support Candidate Who Will Fight for Middle Class

PHILADELPHIA, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Democratic candidate for governor, Tom Wolf joined representatives from the Pennsylvania Conference of Teamsters and the Carpenters Union today to accept their endorsements in his gubernatorial race against incumbent Gov. Tom Corbett.

International Brotherhood Of Teamsters.

Wolf, who won the Democratic primary with nearly 58 percent of the vote, holds more than a 20-point lead over Corbett in recent polls. His campaign promotes reform in Harrisburg and he has pledged to rebuild the state's economy which has suffered under Corbett's administration.

"We all saw what Gov. Corbett's failed policies have done to Pennsylvania," said William Hamilton, Teamsters Pennsylvania Conference of Teamsters President and Eastern Region International Vice President. "We went from seventh in the nation in job creation to 47th on Corbett's watch and saw him push through legislation that is designed to attack public employees. It's time for positive change and Tom Wolf is the right man for the job. As a successful business owner, he knows what it will take to create jobs and turn our state around."

Wolf echoed Hamilton's sentiments, promising a new direction for the state.

"I am pleased to have the support of the Carpenters and Teamsters, and look forward to working with them as we head toward November," Wolf said. "Under Tom Corbett's failed policies, our schools are suffering, our economy is stagnant, and middle-class families are shouldering an unfair burden. The people of Pennsylvania are ready for a fresh start because they know it's time to restore funding to our schools and rebuild our economy so it works for everyone."

"I am proud to endorse Tom Wolf for Governor today," Edward Coryell Sr., Executive Secretary-Treasurer, Carpenters Local Union 8. "We need new leadership for Pennsylvania. Tom Wolf is a man of vision with a proven track record in both the public and private sectors. I believe Tom Wolf will hit the ground running and start moving Pennsylvania in the right direction."

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media).
