I'm confused -- did she go to the Y or the U? Or both?

Representative Black has a wonderful daughter who is a teacher in Colorado. As a parent, I take my hat off to Mrs. Black for her accomplishments, both as a state Representative, and as a Mother!

Why doesn't it just come right out and say that Laura is the head of the local teachers union (aka Union Boss) instead of a "labor relations specialist". Laura does not work for the district as this makes it sound like.
