One of his favorite moments is when he developed his chief steward, Marissa, into a leader. She didn’t know anything about the union but through their conversations about the contracts, COPE, and other things. As he developed her into a leader, she’s now developing other people into leaders which he feels is making the world a better place.
He talked about his work recruiting other leaders. Because he’s being viewed as a leader he has more opportunities to accomplish more. He loves being a leader. His father is proud of him and his role as a leader. He’s never really had that relationship with his father before.
