    I talked to an acquaintance who was in attendance of the tdu convention. Him and I don't always agree but we put differences aside. He told me he was embarrassed at the turnout. He said it was pretty well run but he said the people nor the money ain't there. He said it seemed like a whole bunch of misdirection and ra ra about nothing. I asked him about how many principle officers were there and he counted 8. Anyway good luck with that.

    DEPENDS ON WHO YOU TALK WITH,......

    I was told a different story,....
    Over 300 in attendance, and a dozen or so P.O's

    Any H. supporter will down play any success the other side has,......
    ( can't let a tdu convention out-shine H. & H.)

    I really don't care if it was in a barn Tim still has my support,......

    I love that someone had the audacity to say 40 principle officers were there. The guy I talked to said there were 127 in attendance and that is with the rather large contingent of local 89 and 804 members. He was a little taken back because of how close it is to the election next year.

    127 in attendance that's $64000 plus whatever else they can hustle out of them......tdu members are pretty dumb so they probably give at least another 500-1000.......so I figure they robbed there followers of about 150k what do you guys think

    I got pics of Tim driving around in a Nissan. He's definitely a Nissan man. I don't know any principle officer let alone an elected official that would be caught dead in a foreign made non union made car. It's a bad look.
