Are you a teacher, a city or county employee, a DOT or DHS worker and you voted for Rep. Mike Bergan? I’m betting you didn’t think he would vote to gut a collective bargaining agreement that was thoughtfully passed in a bipartisan way led by Gov. Robert Ray in 1974.
I’m sure when he came knocking on your door last summer he didn’t tell you that he would vote to strip your bargaining rights in an effort to neuter unions. And do it in the most unprecedented way, by stifling debate and with no collaboration. I’m sure you didn’t think that he would also vote for a paltry school aid increase of 1.1 percent that will lead to larger class sizes and reduced programs.
