At least that’s what Logsdon and her minions have always proclaimed. Until an election’s over and she practically goes into hibernation.
Logsdon and other county supervisors put out a news release this week touting a county agency and a union that read in part:
On Tuesday, November 29, Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) and Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 998, the union that represents MCTS bus drivers and mechanics, reached an agreement on a 3-year contract. The contract includes significant wage increases, more flexible hours, and minimal changes to healthcare.
Logsdon, the conservative (ROTFL), is quoted in the release:
“We work best when those with differing opinions come to the table in the hopes of finding solutions that will best serve Milwaukee County. I am thrilled that both parties were able to achieve a 3-year contract and avoid a strike, and I will remain committed to bettering our transit system through my work on the Committee on Transportation and Transit.”
Let’s refer to the first paragraph in the release:
The contract includes significant wage increases, more flexible hours, and minimal changes to healthcare.
Nine (9) supervisors including Logsdon fail to elaborate. The omission prompted Franklin Mayor Steve Olson to interject on Supervisor Kathleen Vincent’s Facebook page:
What were the pay increase percentages? Was there off-sets in other compensation areas? What are the pension benefits. No details are offered in the press release.
Olson is correct and more than justified in his comments given Logsdon represents part of Franklin. No details were offered in what is a horrible news release leading me to wonder if the nine supervisors actually know the details or even care. The people who pay the bills, the beleaguered taxpayers, deserve full disclosure and information.
As for this Logsdon gem…
“We work best when those with differing opinions come to the table in the hopes of finding solutions…”
Remember that when you want something done and the flaming liberals on the county board tell you to take a hike.
