So We The People take our hats off to the Gracedale employees because unlike the connivers, we're confident that you did what you said you would do.
We don't know all the details yet, however, we can speculate that the employees agreed to give back what AFSCME initially promised to give back, probably in the area of 3 Million dollars. We presume this to be the case because Mr. Stoffa appeared very pleased with the results of the negotiation.
To the Gracedale employees we say first and foremost - THANK YOU.
We know it is a hard bullet to bite, but in the interest of keeping Gracedale where it belongs, in County hands, you have done the right thing.
We The People fought hard to provide the NorCo electors the right to vote on the "Sale of Gracedale " matter, and now by this action you demonstrate to the entire County, State, and Country that you too were sincere in your words - backing them up with unquestionable action.
We The People stand tall with the Gracedale employees, because while the connivers played their games, and while they were less than truthful or honest, we united together, not to play games, but to demonstrate that our yes means yes, and our no means no.
The deeds of Gracedales employees as they relate to the contract clearly illustrate who was playing games and who was not.
Hats off to you!!!
