Hillary Clinton with UFCW Local 1500 President Tony Speelman
Anthony Speelman, president of New York's largest grocery workers union, United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1500, released the following statement after Secretary Hillary Clinton secured the delegates necessary to clinch the Democratic nomination for president of United States of America:

"Congratulations to Secretary Hillary Clinton on securing delegates for the Democratic nomination. Secretary Clinton has broke yet another barrier in our nation’s history by becoming the first woman presidential nominee for a major political party. I congratulate her for her resilience, dedication and commitment to helping all Americans. She is clearly the most qualified and deserving candidate for President of United States of America.

“While the presumed Republican candidate continues to speak and focus on building walls to divide families and our country, Secretary Clinton’s message and vision remains on uniting our country, and helping hard working Americans.

“Senator Sanders has energized and inspired millions of men and women, I congratulate him. I urge his supporters to unite behind Secretary Clinton. Once the Democratic party unites, our voices will become even stronger to fight for a better middle class, and to make sure hard working men and women aren't left behind. It is only a unified voice that can crumble the campaigns of hate and division run by the Republican party."
