The endorsement of Liberato was seen by party officials and area Democratic Party regulars as a strong move to unify the party in Macomb County.
Everyone feels he’s a sincere person and will work for everyone’s concern and this is what the party is really looking for.
Liberato pledged that the county would assume a ‘very active role’ in state politics.
RALPH LIBERATO’S ELECTION AS MACOMB COUNTY COMMISSIONER PROMPTED HIS DECISION TO RESIGN AS CHAIRMAN DECEMBER 31, 1990.
In Macomb County, and across this state, Liberato is held in the highest esteem
for his role in negotiations for AFSCME councils and as the chair of the Macomb
County Democratic Party…
In the years I’ve had the good fortune to know Liberato, we’ve had our share
of differences – from editorial stands taken by the paper to positions espoused
by the labor movement. But in all those discussions, we never lost respect for
what Liberato believed and stood for as a labor and party spokesman. Maybe
because we shared the same concerns for the quality of life for all peoples,
regardless of the color of their skin, their place of worship or non-worship,
and deep-seated political beliefs.
