Buttigieg endorses Biden prior to Super Tuesday elections

first_imgFormer South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden before a rally in Dallas on Monday night. Buttigieg ended his bid for the presidency Sunday.“When I ran for president, we made it clear that the entire idea was about rallying the country together to defeat Donald Trump and to win the era for the values that we share,” Buttigieg said in his endorsement speech. “That was always a goal that was much bigger than me becoming president, and it is in the name of that very same goal that I am delighted to endorse and support Joe Biden for president.”Buttigieg officially ended his presidential campaign on Sunday evening with an announcement at the Century Center in South Bend. During the speech, he declined to endorse a candidate. The endorsement in Dallas comes just one day later, after Senator Amy Klobuchar also left the presidential race. Klobuchar has also offered her endorsement to Biden.Buttigieg dropped his candidacy ahead of Super Tuesday on March 3, when 14 states will hold their Democratic primary elections. Buttigieg won the Iowa caucuses earlier this month, and came in a close second to Senator Bernie Sanders in the New Hampshire primary less than a week later. But, he received 14.3% of the vote in the Nevada caucuses and only 8.2% of the vote in Saturday’s South Carolina primary, behind Biden, Sanders and billionaire Tom Steyer.Buttigieg was the mayor of South Bend from 2012 to 2020. Mayor James Mueller took office Jan. 1 of this year.Tags: 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieglast_img read more

How will you feel at the funeral of your co-worker, boss, or direct report?

first_img 19SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Amy Downs In addition to being the CEO of Allegiance Credit Union, Amy also speaks on the importance of resisting complacency.  Amy survived the 1995 OKC bombing and later transformed her life … Details Back in 1995, I was a young 28 year old and didn’t think it was appropriate to give the boss a compliment. People who do something like that earn a title that has something to do with the color of their nose. You just don’t do that. Or so I thought, before sitting at Vicky Texter’s funeral wishing so badly that I had told her exactly how much I admired her. I wish she knew the positive way her leadership had impacted my life. I wish she knew how much confidence I had gained working under her supervision.My boss’s funeral wasn’t the only one I attended that year. I had to deal with the deaths of 18 of my 33 co-workers. I never told them how much they meant to me. Our Credit Union, Federal Employees Credit Union, was in the Alfred P. Murrah building which was blown up in an act of domestic terrorism on April 19, 1995. Granted, this situation was extreme but eventually the odds are great you will one day attend the funeral of someone you worked with.We often spend more time with our co-workers than we do our own families. Even though we are professionals and may not be “friends” outside of the office, does this mean it isn’t okay to occasionally let your co-workers know that you care about them? Why shouldn’t we tell our boss they are amazing (if they are)?Many things changed for me after April 19, 1995. One of them is that I tell my work family how I feel about them. I never want to sit at a funeral again with regret for words unsaid. Whether we like it or not, we are not just “co-workers”, we are emotional beings who on are a journey connected together by an industry focused on helping people. In the words of the Pointer Sisters, “We Are Family”.For me, this means occasionally sending downright sappy emails to let others know the positive way they have impacted my life. Even board members. Call my nose any color you want.Would you feel regret for words unsaid if you were sitting at the funeral of your boss, co-worker, or direct report right now? If so, do something about it.last_img read more
