United Steelworkers have endorsed Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato for Pennsylvania governor. USW President Leo Gerard says he and Onorato see eye-to-eye, and says Onorato will invest in the future of manufacturing and labor. Gerard says “he’s a kid from the North Side, and he’s never forgotten that.”
Onorato says that those in labor are very important to him, and he says his endorsement from the USW will boost him in the governor’s race. He reflects on his six years as county executive, and looks to that work when seeing what he can do for the state in the future, not just the region.
