Your Union (CPF & 1014) voter guide
If you haven’t noticed, its that time again. Time to do what other counties wish they had the freedom to do...VOTE. When it comes down to it the important thing about Tuesday June 5th is that you get out and vote.
Using this link http://cpfvoterguide.org/ you will be able to go online and see who your Union is recommending you vote for.
When you get in that ballot box you need to vote for whomever you believe will do the job you are hoping for. Get out there and vote for that person or persons you believe will do a good job.
When you elected your Executive Board of 1014 you elected us to do many things and one of those is to help get people elected that would work to protect our wages, hours and working conditions. When we interview candidates for positions from local city council all the way to Governor or Congress that is all we are focused on. We do not ask questions about daylight savings time, National Parks or anything else that does not affect your wages, hours or working conditions.
We ask, very directly, about your pensions, health and safety, wages and presumption laws to name only a few. You do not elect us to ask about anything else.
We recommend you vote for those that will do the most for firefighters, nothing more, nothing less. We ask that you “vote your paycheck”.
As we all know there are some serious attacks both nationally and in our own state that will hurt or possibly destroy public unions. There are serious efforts to drastically change our pensions. We look at elected officials that have a track record of standing up for us on those issues and many other Firefighter issues.
Remember you may not agree with the recommendations we make for whatever reason but also remember you asked us to protect your wages, hours and working conditions, and we look for people that we know will do that.
Get out and VOTE June 5th.
Your Local 1014 Executive Board
