No on Wilbur Ross for Commerce Secretary: Call Senators Feinstein / Harris

For Senators Feinstein and Harris – Call today and tomorrow (both): (DC switchboard (202) 224-3121, other #’s below.)

Script: Hi my name is ____, I am a constituent of Sen. [______] and I am calling to urge you to vote “NO” on the confirmation of Wilbur Ross for Commerce Secretary.   I am concerned about Mr. Ross’ record of predatory business tactics which favor the corporation over the worker and his financial and political conflicts of interests. Mr. Ross has a long history of favoring the bottom line over that of the common man in many industries, from coal to banking. In light of current concerns about Donald Trump’s ties to Russia, Ross should not be confirmed as Commerce Secretary until he has addressed issues that surround his financial ties to Russia.  Thank you.
