However it was surprising how many voted for Jon.
We all knew that 75% would never be possible.
In an ironic twist I could have won $50 but couldn't find my ticket in time.
After I showed Jon The winning ticket he said "you can frame it or put it back in the coffee can".
I put it back in the coffee can.
The executive board will be voting against this recall, that's not a surprise.
I am voting yes on the recall and here is why:
1-The failure of our union leadership in its dealings with TRIMET in our contract negotiations.
2-The failure of our union leadership in advocating against the unjust disciplines that are being handed out by the ruthless, libelous management.
3-The lack of judgment by Jon in putting himself in a position that ended up with his arrest and conviction.
4-The tyrannical leadership displayed by Jon in his humiliation and exclusion of brother Chris Day.
While I think Jon is a brilliant man, I think he is no longer an effective president.
