Didn’t give consent to be in Barrett campaign brochure

To the editor

We recently saw Representative Bob Barrett’s new campaign brochure. It has four pages with a lot of pictures, imagine our surprise when we opened it up and there we are in a picture with Representative Barrett and other union laborers and skilled trade union members.

We were meeting with Representative Barrett about issues important to the Laborers Union including the bonding bill. Not because we support him! Our picture in his campaign piece gives implied support to him, this is as far from the truth as can be. Representative Barrett didn’t vote for the bonding bill, which is the most important bill for us. They took the picture, but we didn’t give consent to be in his campaign brochure and were never asked.
