DEACON: I grew up in Syracuse. My dad worked here, at Syroco.
ROSS DEACON: I got laid off when Colleen was 12. We had three young kids at home and it was a difficult time. My story is very similar to a lot of people in this area. Businesses leave, good jobs never come back. After nine years working there, I got two weeks severance pay.
DEACON: I'm Colleen Deacon and to me creating good-paying jobs is personal. I'll fight bad trade deals and level the playing field for middle-class families. That's why I approve this message.
