Rome Lab, Defense Finance employees endorse Hanna in GOP primary

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Two of the largest employee unions in Oneida County today endorsed U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna in the Republican primary in the 22nd Congressional District.

The Rome Lab and U.S. Defense Finance and Accounting Service employees said Hanna has helped protect their jobs during a time of deep cuts to Defense Department spending.RomeEndorseWeb

Hanna, R-Barneveld, is opposed in the June 24 Republican primary by state Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney, R-New Hartford.

Rome Lab’s Local Union 2612 and DFAS Local Union 201 represent about 750 employees at two sites on the former Griffiss Air Force Base in Rome.

DFAS Local 201 President Ed Abounader said Hanna received the endorsement because he “stuck up for civilian defense employees in Rome during tough times. We know our congressman is focused on growing the Mohawk Valley economy and truly has our interests at heart.”
