Elmira–Tom Reed stopped by Southerntier Custom Fabricators on Thursday afternoon to listen and discuss additional ways to help regional manufacturers invest in themselves and work together to stop the TransPacific Partnership. “We need to make sure our manufacturers have the tools to succeed,” said Tom Reed. “Stopping the TransPacific Partnership is one of the many things we must do to keep manufacturing jobs around for generations to come.”
Ian Morrell, president of Southerntier Custom Fabricators said, “I’m a local manufacturer here in Elmira. It’s not fair that jobs are shipped overseas in my industry and many others. We need people standing up for us like Tom Reed who opposes TPP in order to take care of our businesses and keep these jobs here at home.”
“TPP is a deal that harms our workers and our families. We need more people to oppose this deal like Tom Reed,” said Don Kraft Sr., Steel Metal Workers Union 112.
“Tom is fighting for jobs and our future while DC John Plumb fights for Washington,” said Amy Hasenberg, Tom Reed for Congress Spokeswomen. “Tom Reed puts New York jobs first – he always has and always will.”
