Tim Eyman Wants You To Stay Home On Saturday

Tim Eyman and his corporate cronies are waging a war on public servants, as well as public services, on the ballot in 2010. If some of the initiatives on the ballot this year come to pass it will have a devastating affect on the entire state. But, thanks to the power of solidarity, we can join other union members all across the state to show ol' Eyman that we've got a lot of fight left in us.

As our old friend David Groves at the WA St Labor Council reported, "Labor Neighbor is making its final push this weekend to stress to all union members the importance of voting this election -- and supporting candidates and causes that advance their best interests."

Union members will be conducting neighborhood walks this Saturday, Oct. 30, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, in Bellingham, Everett, Olympia, Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma, Vancouver and Yakima. There are also walks scheduled for Sunday and Labor Neighbor phone banks are running every day through election day.

A complete schedule of activities, along with a list of locations and local coordinators, can be found here. For more information, contact the WFSE Legislative & Political Action Department, at 1-800-562-6002 or, or your local WFSE field office.

I wish Tim Eyman would create an initiative outlawing the red light cameras. Local governments are so addicted to the money they make off the poor folk. They'd go into withdrawals if the cameras were outlawed. What a rip off to the poor folk.
