Sacrifice? Stogner, you don't even know what sacrifice is. If you want to read about sacrifice, just click here, then take a look at our pay check stubs.
The more you open your mouth, the more resolve we have. You say our ticket strike may cause some parks and library to close. Are you serious? Library's and parks don't' put food on our tables! Tell us Dick, exactly how many furlough days have the commissioners and their staff taken over the last 2 years? When is the last time we, the police, received a raise in upwards of 40 percent per year, including a car allowance?
People, do you see the line of folks at Recorders Court? Lined up across the grass even. We have been writing so many tickets people have no where to stand! All those people are lined up to put cash in the county coffers. Stogner says the county can't afford a ticket strike. Well that's the commissioners fault, not our. We can't afford any more cuts to our pay and benefits!
Be prepared for the hassle from the command staff to begin. Don't let the threats of being transferred to different watches, precincts and the loss of extra jobs get to you.
Stay strong, stay united.
