2013 Candidate Questionnaire Responses!

April 9, 2012

When Jack Attacks!!!

by at 4:40 pm.

Everything you ever thought you knew about politics could be turned upside down!

Head over to Gerry Nutter’s Lowell. He has proposed so many scenarios, something he said has gotta be correct.

Why the Call for Transparency / Public talks in Teacher’s Union Bargaining?

After listening to their arguments, I have to agree with the teachers. Their Union is being targeted. The question is by who and why? It doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense that a democratic operative who supports many candidates that the Union also backs would on his own try to do this or is he trying to lay some political capital of his own?

Why is it that only the UTL here in Lowell is being called on to negotiate in public?

Here is a crumb trail:
Can Lowell’s School Committee Do This?
Transparency in Union Bargaining
Charter Schools - Odds and Ends
Molloy P loy Backfires
Public School®
Lashing The Leak *Bubble Alert*
Open Thread: Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing Edition
Muddying the Waters Unethically

SC Executive Meeting Minutes

Some hints:
It’s not personal.
This is happening outside of Lowell.
The School Committee depends on Union voters to get elected.(9,946) The City Manager does not. Scratch City-side Unions off the list.
The Teacher’s contract is the template that most all others follow. It is the “flagship” contract.

Comment on Gerry’s blog, please.
