A Message From Dan Franco & Greg Kelty

Click to enlarge.
I sincerely hope that everyone reading this will exercise the right to vote. Some of us may have our minds made up, while others are still undecided. Some people may know exactly what issues matter to them, while others may still be unsure of where the candidates stand.

The important thing is to fill out your mail ballot and Vote!

This is a very important election, the issues and challenges we face today are real and crucial to both your future, your families future and the future of this union.

The officers you elect
to the New York City District Council of Carpenters will have an enormous responsibility to address the issues and find solutions to the problems of rising health care cost, underfunded pensions, over assessed membership, making sure our contracts are fair and being enforced, hold cheating contractors accountable, improve communications and transparency and find ways to increase man-hours and better job opportunities for all our members.

We've got serious problems, and we need serious people to solve them. We are counting on members and friends like you to give us your all out support and Vote!

The mail in ballots from American Arbitration Association (AAA) will arrive this week, when you receive your ballot, immediately check off Daniel J. Franco for Executive Secretary Treasurer and Greg Kelty President and your choice for Vice President, put the ballot into the addressed envelope and send it back in the mail. All ballots must be returned by mail to the AAA by 5:00 p.m. on December 15, 2011. 

God bless you and God bless our Union.

In solidarity,
Dan Franco 
Greg Kelty


  1. Hey Dan what are you running on 2 lines, The Independent Line and the Unity Team IV Line. You claim to be an Indepenent Candidate. Whats the story here Danny Boy O'Franco?

  2. I know that Franco's abilities as a carpenter are put into question a lot, which is really funny since so many carpenters in the Union are just as inept. Anyway.

    Since he might not know, lacking skills, the best way to kill a rat is with a claw hammer. Even the two-faced kind.

    Don't ever get caught and charged with corruption, fraud, embezzlement, etc.

    Just some advice.

  3. Looks like mug shots after a DWI

  4. More like two pedophiles.


I would ask that if you would like to leave a comment that you think of Local 157 Blogspot as your online meeting hall and that you wouldn’t say anything on this site that you wouldn’t, say at a union meeting. Constructive criticism is welcome, as we all benefit from such advice. Obnoxious comments are not welcome.
