The political action committee known as End Citizens United recently announced four more endorsements for the coming midterm elections.

The first is former navy SEAL Josh Butner who will seek to defeat Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter for California’s District 50 seat. Hunter has been named to ECU’s “Big Money 20” list. This list denotes politicians who have been especially egregious in taking big money from giant corporate special interests and billionaires.

The next announced End Citizens United candidate is Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. She will make her challenge for Florida’s 26th District. If selected to run by Florida Democrats, Mucarsel-Powell will take on Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo in what promises to be an extremely competitive race.

ECU has also chosen to back Max Rose for the New York District 11 race. Rose will be the first post-9/11 combat veteran and Afghanistan War vet to seek office in a New York City district. The seat is currently held by Republican Rep. Daniel M. Donovan.

Finally, End Citizens United has endorsed Sylvia Garcia for the 29th District seat of Texas. The Texas 29th is currently held by Democrat Gene Green who is not seeking reelection.

All four of these candidates strongly support the primary goal of End Citizens United – which is to get the corrupting influence of big money out of politics. ECU was established in 2015 in reaction to the 2010 Citizens United ruling which made it legal for mega-corporation and billionaires to donate as much money as they want to any political candidate.

Those candidates tend to be far-right, radical Republicans who are beholden to the corporate cash cows who helped them buy their way into public office. The founders of End Citizens United say the average American voter is increasingly being shoved aside – their interests ignored – as Senators and House members do the bidding of their campaign cash contributors.

End Citizens United has raised $35 million dollars without taking big donations from major corporations or private billionaire oligarchs. Rather, ECU has put together its PAC money the old-fashioned way – one small donation at a time from ordinary American citizens.

In fact, the average donation from more than 400,000 people who donated to ECU is just $14. To date, more than 3 million people have signed on as members of End Citizens United. Working together with individual hard-working Americans, getting big money out of politics is possible – and electing more Democrats to both houses of Congress is the just the first step.

OSI Group is an international multi-billion dollar food processing corporation offering food products, processing, packaging, distribution, as well as research and development to an extensive customer base on the American, European, and Asian continents. Since their inception in 1909 as a meat market and butcher shop, OSI has strived to improve upon themselves while building a loyal and lasting customer base. Company founder, Otto Kolschowsky, (a German immigrant and entrepreneur) developed a business relationship with founder and CEO of McDonalds Ray Kroc in 1955, and through that partnership helped build OSI Group into where it stands today, as one of America’s top 100 businesses in the food industry.

Becoming a top business in any field comes through diversity and success, and OSI Group has a set of core values that drive it from the form to the latter. There are two distinct sets of values, the first being customer oriented, and the second employee oriented. OSI Group has long held that doing business should be more intimate than just that of company and customer. Getting to know the customer’s needs, wants, and goals can help guide the design and production process, with the end result being a product more in tune with the customer’s brand. OSI has a culture that operates on this premise and is able to competently and efficiently handle whatever unique concept a customer might bring. The second set of values stretch back to the company’s beginnings as a small, family-owned business on the outskirts of Chicago. Employees of OSI Group are part of a family and are taken care of as any family member would. Workplace safety has won the company multiple awards, and employees are generously compensated for their work. Employee concerns are of paramount concern and anyone with an issue is encouraged to voice it.

With these values and under the leadership of Sheldon Lavin, OSI Group has gone international with 55 locations in 16 different countries. Along this journey, they have been able to acquire big names in the industry like Tyson Food, Baho Food, and Flagship Europe, and have built an empire now valued at over $6 billion. There are over 20,000 employees worldwide and they have a customer base in the thousands. There are research and development departments in every major location fully equipped with test kitchens to imitate and replicate whatever concept a customer might dream up. All of this cements OSI Group as one of the top 100 food industry companies in America.
