Boy oh boy, when you hire PR flack Sam Singer to represent you, as many others have done, he won’t just hide in some office, oh no. What he’ll do is go out in the field and meet your nemesis head on. As here, during yesterday’s big labor rally / march / sit-in in and around Union Square.
With hundreds of unionists assembling behind him on Market Street, Sam sang to the media, complete with Frank Chu watching on.
