Kucinich Returns on May 19th

Congressman Dennis Kucinich will return to the state on May 19th. Here is a press release on the trip:

Presidential Candidate Congressman Dennis Kucinich returns to New Hampshire May 19th to address the Stop the Sale Rally organized by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 2320, and the Communication Workers of America, Local 1400. If the sale of Verizon landlines to Fairpoint Communications of North Carolina goes through, there is the risk of loss of three thousand union jobs, lower quality of communication services, a worsening of the digital divide, and less competition among providers which could effect rates paid by consumers. Union members from throughout New England and state and local AFL-CIO’s will be supporting the rally scheduled for 10:30 in Prescott Park in Portsmouth. Kucinich, a union member himself, has a 100% AFL-CIO ranking. He has been an outspoken critic of the consolidation of money upward through recent tax changes, and the CAFTA and WTO agreements, which as President he would cancel. Later the same day Kucinich will be in Portland, Maine. He will speak at a campaign rally at 4:30 at the Woodford Club, 179 Woodford Street (207-772-4893) and will be the keynote speaker at the Maine People’s Alliance Rising Tide Dinner at 8PM (207-797-0967).
