It’s our opinion that when government unions back union-friendly candidates, it’s the tax-payers who lose big-time. Unfortunately, this is going on in Carroll County right now.
Please check out this story. When a teacher tries to leave her teacher’s union, she’s bullied and intimidated. The reason she leaves the union is because she doesn’t like the union’s politics, not one bit. We at KCC don’t like what they’re up to, either.
From the linked article:
“What troubles me is the union is so involved in politics that they use our money to put a lot of those government officials into their jobs. Now the union is bargaining with officials who have been put in their spot by union money, and they’re union-friendly,” she said. “You have union-friendly officials on the other side, and taxpayers aren’t represented, and they’re bargaining with taxpayer money. I think that’s political.”
We think it is ridiculous, too. And it’s the main reason so many states and towns are broke. They can’t afford all the goodies pro-union government officials gave government union members – ridiculously high salaries, Cadillac benefits, and unrealistic pensions.
If you’re like us, and you don’t like the sound of it, please consider voting for candidates we recommend.
Keep Carroll Conservative supports candidates who are beholden to all citizens, not special-interest groups like government unions.
