Sharen Neuhardt is running for the newly formed 10th congressional district. She sat down with Emily McCord for this week's edition of PoliticsOhio to say why she thinks she'll win the election. Neuhardt the state of her campaign, the potential defense cuts coming with sequestration and its impact on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, and how she plans to help Delphi workers that lost their pension after the company went through bankruptcy.
When automaker, General Motors, went through bankruptcy in 2009, about 20,000 non-union, salaried retirees from Delphi saw their pensions slashed, and other benefits like health and life insurance dropped completely. Those cuts were not applied to all Delphi union workers. WYSO’s Jerry Kenney reports, fingers are now pointing at the US Treasury Department for not applying those cuts evenly for all Delphi workers.
