Dear John,

Peter Gillard has worked as a federal employee for 35 years. He took pride in his job, and worked hard for his paycheck and pension. Now he’s retired and mad as hell. He finds it insulting that Romney think’s he’s dependent and irresponsible. In Peter’s words, “I’ve worked hard for what I have, and I’m not a moocher.” That’s why he made this video. Watch it below.


Share the video and show it to your friends. Your job and pension are at stake in this election. We can’t afford to have Romney in the White House. Claim your stake and vote this November.

In Solidarity,
Peter Gillard
Federal Retiree and AFGE member
