UWUA support was key to Local 164 member John Lorenzo winning his race to become Commissioner of Rostraver Township, PA in November. The 40-year-old father of two decided to run for office after successfully opposing the privatization of his township’s wastewater operation. “I want make sure our residents’ interests come first,” he says, adding, “The donation I received from the National Union was instrumental. I was able to increase my visibility with lawn signs and flyers. I would encourage other utility workers to step up to the plate and run for office.
