Families and children welcome!


John Ratzenberger is a television star, voice actor for animated films, and entrepreneur. He is best known for
his role as American's Mailman, "Cliff" in Cheers, and his recurring supporting cast role in all of Pixar's feature films made to date. His roles include:


Hamm the Piggy Bank in the Toy
     Story series (1995, 1999, 2010)


P.T. Flea, the Circus Ring Leader
     in A Bug's Life (1998)


The Abominable Snowman in
     Monsters, Inc. and Monsters University (2001, 2013)


The School of Moonfish in Finding
     Nemo (2003)


The Underminer in The
     Incredibles(2004)


Mack the truck in the Cars series
     (2006, 2011)


Mustafa the waiter in Ratatouille
     (2007)


John in WALL-E (2008)


Tom the construction worker in Up
     (2009)


Gordon the guard in Brave (2012)


Crucially, John Ratzenberger is the spokesman for the Manufacturing Crisis in America initiative. The poor image of manufacturing during recent years -- and still today -- may be the most powerful factor
driving the skilled workers shortage.


Just this summer, the DOL, in a candid overview, stated, "Manufacturing confronts a negative image,
characterized by such phrases as "declining," "dirty,"
"low-pay," and so on. Consequently, too few highly skilled workers seriously consider manufacturing career."


While recalling the knowledge gained while producing and hosting the 97 episodes of John Ratzenberger's Made in America for the Travel Channel, Ratzenberger adds, "Part of the problem is the media and Hollywood often portray manufacturing in a poor light, denigrating anyone who works with their hands."



John aims to change that image by raising awareness of the Manufacturing Crisis in America as he meets with  Cindy and other active leaders across the country.


"I am pleased and honored that he will be joining me to discuss issues that matter with our residents, including returning jobs to Connecticut," said Cindy Cartier.
