Union wins, but Capac kids lose in school election


To the Editor:

On May 5th Capac School District voters elected MEA-CEA endorsed Barry Geliske and Norm McDunnah to the school board. Two men of quality and dedication James Crane and Mike Lentz were gone. The MEA-CEA union support financially and with get-out-the-vote calls made the difference. Only nine teachers live in the district, yet the election was influenced by out-of-towners. That's troubling.

Why will quality people run for an office that submits them to verbal abuse such as board meetings have been? Why leave family for that? How or why will anyone run for a job that pays $25 per meeting—$300 or so per year when the teachers' union can spend far more to support a "friendly" candidate?

This warning shot of power by the MEA-CEA should scare Capac District residents. If the union can power into office two more "friendly" school board members, it can run the school board writing fat union contracts, fat checks, and leading Capac Schools to financial ruin!
