On This Day in 1940

Woody Guthrie wrote “This Land Is Your Land” following a frigid trip—partially by hitchhiking, partially by rail—from California to Manhattan. The Great Depression was still raging. Guthrie had heard Kate Smith’s recording of “God Bless America” and resolved to himself: “We can’t just bless America, we’ve got to change it”.

Incumbent Officers Re-Elected for 2012
Updated On: Dec 06, 2011

(L-R) Re-elected to serve on Local 355's Executive Board for the term 2012-2015 are Secretary-Treasurer Dave White; Recording Secretary Bill Alexander; Trustee Ed Mulford; Trustee Janet Genovese; President Denis Taylor; Trustee Tim Marvel. Pictured below is Vice President Erv Williams.

 

Nov. 7, 2011 | In a solid re-affirmation in the current leadership team, all Local 355 incumbent officers were awarded another 3-year term by members attending Sunday's officer nomination meetings in Baltimore and Salisbury.

When nominations closed, the officers were unopposed and therefore in accordance with Teamster election rules, they were unanimously re-elected. Sean Cedenio, Joint Council 62 Recording Secretary and Principle Officer of Teamsters Local 570 (Baltimore) conducted the nominations in Baltimore. Ken Kelm, Joint Council 62 Secretary-Treasurer and Principle Officer of Teamsters Local 311 (Baltimore) conducted the nomination meeting at Local 355's Salisbury office.

"I want to extend my thanks to the members for their continued support of this Executive Board," said President Denis Taylor, who will enter his seventh term as Local 355's principle officer. "We'll continue to strive to make our shops a better place for our members in this tough labor environment."

"We look to continue to improve this Local Union for its membership. We thank them for their unwaivering support," said Vice President Erv Williams.

"We've got a good team in place - a team that really knows what it's doing," said Trustee Tim Marvel. "As a result of Denis' and Dave's leadership, we've got the strongest local in the country."

"Having this election uncontested shows the unity in our local and hopefully, we'll continue to build on this in future years," said Sargeant-at-Arms John Moylan, who also echoed some members' comments that an uncontested election will save the Local "a ton of money."
