Bruce Hansen refuses to accept his defeat

Bruce thinks that a new election will put him back in power.
I suppose this is part and parcel to the way unions work. People don't accept defeats gracefully. Unions are about people gaining positions of power and those in power don't give that up willingly. 

Bruce only garnered 35% of the total votes so he has no 'real' support.

The vice presidential election can be grieved because  Dan Martin wasn't technically eligible to run for office but the presidential election was totally on the up and up.
 Bruce lost fair and square. 

Notice his 'platform' is:
 HOW LONG BEFORE RON HEINTZMAN IS BROUGHT BACK AS A CONSULTANT?
(hopefully immediately)

That's Bruce's platform. Attacking another union man. Wonderful Bruce, just dandy.

He's also upset that Shirley fired the lawyer he hired . 
If I were Shirley I would dump everyone aligned with Bruce and get my own people in there.
 That's her right as president, just like Bruce did with Ron.

Who is it that is keeping this union divided now?
 That'd be Bruce Hansen.

I'm all in favor of having another election. Bruce can lose a second time. 
Maybe then he will get behind the wheel of his bus and leave the rest of us alone.

I'm sorry I just don't see it that way megaton.

Bus drivers are never going to be happy with anything regarding signups.

Block signups sure seemed a way to negate seniority rights from my understanding of the program.

And we know for sure the tyrants that run Trimet will do everything in their power to destabilize the new president so that's expected.
