Lilly Ledbetter, the Alabama worker for whom the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act is named, has endorsed Artur Davis for Governor of Alabama. This legislation affected every female in the U.S. work force and was badly needed. Ms. Ledbetter had this to say in her endorsement:
I’m Lilly Ledbetter, and I’m proudly supporting Artur Davis for governor. Artur has the vision, the grit, and the determination to transform Alabama’s economy. He believes in this state, and he knows that with the right leadership, Alabama can lead the country. I just recorded a short video from home explaining why I support Artur. Watch my endorsement video today — and then if you haven’t already, sign on to pledge your support for Artur too.
Until about eleven years ago, I was just another working grandmother. But after years of fighting for what I was rightfully owed, my employment discrimination suit came before the Supreme Court, and eventually Barack Obama signed a bill with my name on it. I never expected to be in the political spotlight, but I’ve learned that sometimes you have to stand up and speak out for what you believe in. Alabama is facing some tough challenges. A lot of families are struggling just to make ends meet and put food on the table. It’s going to take a strong leader to rebuild our economy, improve our public schools, and restore the trust in state government.
That’s why we need Artur Davis in the Governor’s office. Watch my endorsement of Artur Davis now — then stand up and join me as we roll up our sleeves to elect Artur Davis the next Governor of Alabama. When Artur Davis says that he will fight for working women and working families, believe me, I know he’ll keep his word. Artur has what it takes to lead us to victory next fall. But he can’t do it alone. He needs our help and our support.
In my opinion, this was a most significant endorsement. Coming just after the Labor Day holiday made it even more important. Working men and women, and especially women, all understand and appreciate what this endorsement means in the Governor’s race from their perspective.
