Copy of a letter I recently sent to the Cburg paper. Let me know what you think.
I would say I am amazed, but I'm not. I think it is funny. Again we went thru an election where the teachers & state employees generally endorsed Democrats(with a few exceptions), then after the elections, the Dems turn around and give them the shaft. Then surprise the teachers and state employees gripe, cry and generally complain. When are they going to learn.
I have had people tell me, well it is more than the Republicans would do. How do you know? I know Rob Capehart received the endorsement of the WVAFT & WVEA(in the 2004 gubenatorial primary), by telling them he felt they needed a raise, but there were other areas more pressing. "Lets fix them then we will see if we can give you a raise. Unfortunalely he lost.
Now what is going to really be funny is when Nationally the Dems, and unfortunately I think Pres Bush is going to go along with them, raise the minimum wage and prices go higher. Then what little raise MOJO does give the teachers will be ate up by inflation. No wait it won't be funny it will really be sad.
All I can say is I didn't vote for them.
