What a cowardly act of the government and those in the statehouse to deny the rights of working people. Then try to lay the blame of this failed economy on the backs of the worker. It was the greedy actions of those on Wall Street and the politicians that ignored what they did. Teachers, police and firemen did not create this mess.
I have a son who is a marine and served in Iraq. He did his duty and is home now.
Another son is a state highway patrolman and another is a firefighter. My son would not stop chasing a stolen car until he had a better pension plan. My firefighter would not stand outside a burning home waiting for an increase in his dental plan. They would put themselves in harm’s way to protect those in need. That is their job.
When they retire, I hope they will be comfortable. I’m sure the governor will be more than comfortable when he retires and he will not have put himself in harm’s way for a second.
Vote no on Issue 2 and give honor and respect to those who protect us.
Mike Edelbrock,
a proud father of sons who serve and protect
