form an opinion base on the fact that Gerry Gausman has been (is?) a Joe Firth lackie. Gerry Gausman spoke on the convention defending Joe Firth on the UBC charges that got him dismissed. In his defense, Gerry Gausman opening statements included a congratulations to Doug McCarron's on winning another term. He thanked McCarron for all his hard work and leadership and wished him luck for the next five years. He preceded to defend his friend Joe Firth even though Joe Firth admitted to driving drunk in a union car and handing jobs to his friends and family. He defended a man who was given a notice for possible action two weeks prior to national convention by RO Walsh.
Not once have I heard this guy speak up for the membership. This guy Gausman in no way in the same league as Mike Bilello. I am shocked he picked him as VP.
Why are you shocked? Biello wants to be EST. He wants the 608 vote. So he has teamed up with Gausman and Arana, or did you miss Arana campaigning during the meeting? Doing his best to show the current Eboard in a bad light.
So you have Gausman, Arana and Biello as three of the slate.
Now, my question is, why would you want any one of these self serving candidates?
All this grumbling is stupid.. Stop Campaigning lets get out of towners off our list and get the 5000 guys out of work back to work. Lets focus on the Next Contract.Lets focus on FULL MOBILITY. Focus on keeping or increasing the 67 -33. Lets focus on the new DOO that is supposidly a retired NJ state trooper. Stop bashing people on here its all for nought. Focusing on who was tight with who over the years solves nothing!!! Thomas Pain did your write "Common Sense." ?
