BREAKING STORY: Major Labor Leader to Endorse Alger
Campaign documents released today show that Butcher is among a list of contributers who donated to the campaign. Funds raised now by the Alger camp reports at $35,000. This is a significant development in that Algers' primary is contested by Lyn Shaw Hilfenhaus, wife of Labor leader Jim Hilfenhaus.
Conventional wisdom would lead us to think all labor would go to Shaw-Hilfenhause. However, when Mayor Sam placed a call to Michael O'Connell, Chief of Staff to the Alger Campaign, O'Connell refused to deny the endorsement. "Jim will release his endorsements at a time and place that he feels are prudent." said O'Connell.
