Vote No on G!
Original post made

I will be voting no on G. G is a measure put forth by the teachers union to preserve pay increases in a recession. It is not about preserving education or safety in our schools. It is about teacher pay. A short term 4% pay cut, or a deferral of their planned increase would have solved this issue. Most of us can afford the extra $250/year. It isn't an issue of money. I'd gladly pay more the day the union allows us to let go of poor teachers, or sets up a pay for performance structure so we can pay great teachers more money, or gets rid of seniority as the only means to downsize when times are tough. GM files for bankruptcy tomorrow. Its the same problem - too much pension, to much pay, too LITTLE PERFORMANCE. Vote NO ON G!
