Once in a Lifetime

Ina Sidney, a line worker at Chrysler's Toledo Machining Plant in Perrysburg Township, introduced President Obama at his first campaign stop in Ohio at the Wolcott House Museum in Maumee. "At first, it didn't hit me until it came time to say his name and he was going to come out. This was a once-in -a-lifetime experience," said Sidney. She was laid off for two months in 2009, which caused her to fall behind on her mortgage and other bills. "But then, President Obama stood up for me," she said. "He bet on the American worker, and he rescued America's auto industry, and it's paying off for our economy and country."
