He expressed his gratitude for their trust and pledged to fight for their rights, including protecting prevailing wage, ensuring the right to organize, and investing in apprenticeship programs.

James Reilly, IUOE 542 Business Manager, asserted that building a better Pennsylvania means electing officials who value union jobs and understand the prudent use of tax dollars. For him, Bizzarro fits the bill. “Ryan Bizzarro is the right candidate who’ll be a Treasurer working people can depend on,” he said.
