Knoxville Mayoral Candidate Madeline Rogero's Liberal Past

Here is a 1974 newspaper article about Knoxville Mayoral Candidate Madeline Rogero and her boycotting/picketing activity with the organization of Cesar Chavez. Below is a photograph of Rogero picketing/boycotting on behalf of the organization that she worked for.

Here is a Boycott Organizing Manual of the group. The photographs below are reportedly from a 2006 reunion of the Cesar Chavez Farm worker Movement Organization, here.

With the aggressive boycotting and protest going on in Wisconsin against the Governor and Republican legislature by organized labor unions, Rogero needs to address her past involvement and how her previous actions will impact her as the City's Mayor dealing with the Fraternal Order of Police, the Firefighters and City of Knoxville employee groups.
