The Association of Caribbean-Americans in Correction Openly Declares its Support for the Re-election of Norman Seabrook for the position of President of C.O.B.A.
It is a great honor to write this letter in support of Norman Seabrook. Norman has approximately seventeen (17) continuous years of experience as the C.O.B.A. President. As President, he has successfully achieved many legislative initiatives, such as, the Variable Supplement Fund Bill, the Heart Bill, ¾ Disability Bill and the Anti-Privatization Bill. Norman has shown continued leadership and inspiring vision. He has provided superior representation to all uniformed members, improved the terms and conditions of employment, protected members contractual rights, provided excellent representation during collective bargaining process. His decisions, although not always popular, have proven successful in the long run and have benefited Correction Officers regardless of rank.
As the economic decline continues to significantly impact State, City, and local governments finances. Head of Governments are forced to cut cost and balance their budgets on the backs of labor cost, either through layoffs, union concessions, and/or reducing pension and health benefits. As we all know, these are difficult uncertain economic times and we cannot afford to risk our wellbeing and lively-hood to a new inexperience group of people. NOW IS THE TIME FOR STRONG PROVENLEADERSHIP. VOTE FOR NORMAN SEABROOK IN THE UPCOMING ELECTION. He is the leader who will get the job done.
It is with great pride that I endorse the candidacy of Norman Seabrook for yet another term as President of C.O.B.A. We are grateful for his service and I urge all fraternal organizations within the department to do the same.?
