Socialist Workers Party runs slate in New York City

The Militant reports on the Socialist Workers Party’s three candidates in New York City this year: “For mayor: Dan Fein, 64, a veteran trade unionist who works at a garment plant in Brooklyn. For public advocate: Maura DeLuca, 30, a unionist and sewing-machine operator. For Manhattan borough president: Tom Baumann, 23, formerly a meatpacking worker, now a student at Hunter College and active in the Young Socialists. All three have submitted double the number of signatures required to appear on the city’s ballot.”

    Downward mobility is, like, so revolutionary.

    What a waste of Dan’s talent! In case you don’t know, he has a masters degree in physics from Brown. He used to work at NASA when he lived in Houston and also worked as a teacher when he was laid off from there. I was ALL for a proletarian orientation, but for those for whom it made sense. Not an artificial twist to make workers out of those who are not that at all.

    Jack Barnes has been reading too much Sinclair.

    Has the SWP ever nominated candidates other than meatpacking and garment factory workers?

    For some reason this reminds me of the early 1900s. Garment plant, trade unionist, meatpacking worker, etc. My what a bully post!
