Johnny Ford, founder of the World Conference of Mayors and the first black mayor of Tuskegee, Ala., cited flaws in the proposed card-check system and called a secret-ballot election the right thing to do.
“The right to a secret ballot is sacred,” Ford said in a letter of support. “It is a right that was declared unalienable and purchased with the precious treasure of blood poured out over two centuries. From our nation’s birth, democracy distinguished itself as mankind’s best hope. And, the secret ballot is freedom’s guarantee.”
