Alan and Judith Bart, and Eldwin and Gail Maynor. Gail Maynor, the RTC Georgia Section coordinator, said the UFT activists collaborated with activists from other unions, including the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the Georgia AFL-CIO, on the presidential campaign as well as local campaigns. Now those energies will be directed to the Jan. 5 runoff in the two U.S. Senate races in Georgia that will decide which party controls the U.S. Senate.

The get-out-the-vote effort in the swing state of Georgia was strong with the help of the AFTVotes bus that rolled into Atlanta on Oct. 28. It was one of the stops on a 20-state, month-long tour to rally voters on behalf of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Biden and Harris narrowly prevailed in Georgia, the first time a majority of voters in the state had voted for a Democrat for president since Bill Clinton won the state in 1992. On hand to greet AFT President Randi Weingarten (right) were members of the local UFT Retired Teachers Chapter section.
