Angle on the Public Sector Union - Politician Connection
Ron Angle, on Business Matters, explains the connection.
"A large percentage of County Council is deeply involved with the unions, in one form or another. A few people like me are willing to stand up for what's right or wrong. The rest are afraid of unions. We live in a society now, where if you're in public office, you've got to fear the unions. Either you get in bed with them, to make sure you can get elected, or at least you accommodate them so they don't work against you."
"I didn't do that. That's why I'm out of office and I wouldn't change it to any other way. Frankly, the taxpayers of Northampton County have been raped for years by the unions of Northampton County."
Although Ron's defeat was the result of a perfect storm of bad news to bombard him over the course of a year, his stance against public sector unions certainly as a major contributing factor.
You see, public sector union members will vote, while the rest of you are busy working to pay for their pensions.
