" It is the responsibility of each employee to promote and apply the principles of equal opportunity in their work and to cooperate fully with the company's plan of action. Affirmative Action is a positive effort to utilize the skills and resources, not only of those who have been denied opportunities in the past, but also of all present and potential employees. I urge all employees to join me in a continuing effort to make equal employment opportunity a reality." Todd Valeri, General Manager
