    I hope he is tough, at least he'll have that going for him because he's dumber than a bucket of rocks. I was in a covo within ear shot of another convo in which he was involved. WOW, reminded me of the guy from the planet fitness commercials. I PICK THINGS UP AND PUT THEM DOWN....

    I don't see that at all. I'me spoken with him directly a few times, he's got a good head on his shoulders. If he was speaking to anyone wearing a "re-elect the membership slate" t-shirt, then he was probably jumping down the conversation so they could understand him. ;-)

    This was posted on TDUnited Action's website:

    "A sincere thank you to each and every one of the hundreds of members who flooded the Union hall to stand with the United Action Slate."

    There were 440 people total who attended the meeting. 390 of those are Membership supporters. 5 rows for you guys plus 2 gives you 50. 10 of those 50 are actually you TDU slates nominees. So you should really recant that statement to say,"Thank you to the 40 people that we bought a free breakfast for so we could show we had some support!"

    And as a footnote:
    Thank you TDUnited Action for showing zero support for our softball tournament that supports our local union scholarship fund. Way to put the members first (no pun intended).
  13. And god forbid if the UA SLATE wins his ass will probably working there!
  14. cause there scumbags!!
  15. Ohhhhh but I'm sure there's a UA slate supporters son/daughters name looking for a scholarship! Won't support it but sure the hell will take it!!!! SMFH

    Looks like Patrick K survived easily in L952. According to TOS he was all but defeated. Tough to beat quality incumbents.
