That's nice. Repeat the lies long and often enough it becomes true doesn't it? She is part of the bloated executive staff whose only job is spin doctoring and manipulation of the facts. Her work moves not one bus or train and causes no maintenance work to be done. Sooner or later that group will throw her under the bus too.
"Mission Critical" is not contained in nor a part of Mary's job desription.Strong, reliable and safe transit Service to those citizens we watched during the last Board Meeting--that is "Mission Critical" Neil.
It's a world wide movement that has been perpetuated to break the unions.Nobody is complaining about the executive salaries nor the $250 MILLION DOLLAR PER MILE light rail to a city of 20,000.Rather they have been able to turn this into a them vs us, the "them" being those greedy selfish unions.This exact same script, that we see here at Trimet, is being played out around the country and the world.It's template that these 100k+ executives are following.Yet drivers/dispatchers/supervisors continue coming through for a company that is actively trying to screw them.It's sad, the only way to end this discussion is a strike, a Long strike.Then the pubic will be aware:1-how important transit is2-who it is that actually runs Trimet. (hint,its not Mary Festch)
Well since Mary is one of the lucky manager who is in on Fred's gravy train fully funded management retirement plan, maybe there needs to be an effort to bring that boondoggle to the public attention!
Well we tried bringing Fred's $15,700/mo pension to the public attention, the corporate media ignores it.The corporate media is part of the problem we face.
