|Bruce has staked his entire future on this new election|
I understood why the Department of Labor ordered a new election for vice president but I don't understand why they ordered a new election for president
I don't see how either of them warranted a new election but what do I know.
I do know one thing for sure, because of Bruce we are in this state of turmoil now.
As we all know the power is vested in the President so this is the one office that matters the most.
So Bruce decided he should be back in that office.
He could have allowed Shirley the consideration to do her job for 3 years.
In three years time if she had flubbed it (as badly as he did by giving the Trimet executives a freebie giveback) he could run once again.
By forcing this new election he has put himself in a box.
If he loses a second time he will be finished as far as union politics is concerned.
Because he can take credit for causing this unnecessary turmoil for no reason but his own self interest.
He has put his self interest ahead of the greater good.
His one issue is with the so called "Heintzman crowd".
His followers are all about that one issue.
They don't care about anything else, all they want is anybody that is connected to Ron Hientzman out of office.
I put it to the reader, is that a logical reason to hold a new election?
I would say that's an emotional reason that serves no logical purpose
If you look at how Bruce handled the presidency when he was in office you will see he operated in the exact same way as Ron did, as Jon did, and as Shirley is operating now.
The only difference is Bruce 'gave' Trimet what they wanted in the last contract.
Shirley, Jon, an Mary walked out of the meetings
Don't forget it was Bruce who gave the Trimet bus drivers the "block signup" it wasn't Shirley.
So ask yourself, why should you vote for Bruce?
Because he's not Shirley?
Because he doesn't like Ron Heintzman, the man that gave us the best contracts of all time?
What can Bruce do that would be better than Shirley?
I have no doubt in my mind that if Bruce does indeed pull off some sort of miracle he will most likely be a better president this time around.
But we don't know that for sure do we.
Bruce was way to cozy with the Trimet sociopathic executives.
It is my belief that they 'got to him'.
Probably the way they get to everybody, by phony compliments and promises they will break later.
So good luck Bruce, if you somehow pull this off people will be watching you closely.
And if you lose, please go away,
