    Al, I’m sorry you only like a couple of the folks I like. Yes, I have to run against the well oiled and well funded “machine”, but even a MAC team can beat a Big10 team once in a while. Thanks for your thoughts coach they are deeply appreciated. If you voted for me and are having buyers remorse you can trust I WILL take care of our retirees. If you voted for Mark and wish you could take that back. That’s okay as well. I’m not prone to hatred and personally, I’m not sure we are even in the 4th quarter of this game yet! Yes, there is no doubt I must be getting thumped badly but until they count the ballots we won’t know the final score. I’m hoping things end up much better in the final stretch. We’re you behind in any of your important games? Give me a word or two of encouragement. Tell me about one of your best come from behind victories! That’s the story I want to hear now! I appreciate you and the wisdom you have imparted in my direction. I appreciate the signatures you have provided for my petitions and signatures provided by all in the APWU.
    Thank you Coach, I’m a fan.

    Brother Jerry: While I commend exercising your right to vote, and the transparency of your ballot; I’m truly disappointed that I can only agree with two. And, one I wish I could take back now that my ballot is in the mail stream. Your choices appear to be predicated on politics over qualified candidates, most egregiously those candidates Retirees’ Dept. members are eligible to vote for. Regrettably, I now pray your candidate choices have the same chance of being elected as you do. That said; you’re likewise to be commended for running,even if against what appears to be a futile effort. And, when it’s all over….Solidarity!
