What?!? You've never heard of him?
What?!? You didn't think union bosses had publicists?
Well, we didn't either. But, apparently this guy does.
According to the New York Times, Mr. Claffey doesn't like publicity.
“I don’t want this to be about me being a celebrity, about me getting my name in the paper,” said James J. Claffey Jr. “I just want to get a contract for my folks. That’s why I do not look to the cameras. That’s why I have a publicist to do that. Most of the time, I’m paying my publicist to keep me out of the press.”
Boy! Now that's a good use of union dues!
