Good old Ron Heintzman
So goes it at ATU 757 right now. It appears that his crony JONATHAN HUNT had appointed an election committee before he left office that was set up especially to make sure there was a challenge to the presidency if Heitnzman lost. Well he lost and the old reliable crony system functions just as well now as it did 100 years ago. The election committee has reccomended a new election of the presidency, the only race that had a somewhat clear victory for Bruce Hansen.
I personally think there should be new elections but president is not one of them. The treasurer lost by the thinnest of margins and the vice president lost only because of stupidest of rules that ATU 757 follows. YOU DON'T NEED A MAJORITY VOTE TO WIN OFFICE and we had some rather arrogant employees who decided they would throw their hat in the race. All of that lead to Jon Hunts Victory as vice president.
I have never been as hard on Jonathan Hunt as the majority of the membership has, but this is the last straw. We need to clear out the Heintzman/Hunt cabal once and for all.
Show up at the next union meeting and get this shit over with. The members are sick and tired of dealing with this blatant cronyism.
If Bruce Hansen is deposed I AM OUT OF THIS UNION FOREVER.
This is why REPUBLICANS win elections.
