Letter from Ron Johnstone

I’ve read Carolyn Schuk’s heart rendering stories of the employee bargaining unit #10 City employees whose lives will be destroyed by the proposed 12% pay cut, especially that of the 911 dispatcher who, after 17 years, surely is making well above the $89K minimum salary but cannot afford a car – perhaps because she chooses to pay over thirteen thousand dollars in private high school tuition?

A suggestion:  have the patrons of our Senior Citizen Center, most of whom are probably living on Social Security, offer a series of “Senior Wisdom” seminars to the unit #10 employees on the subject of “How to Live Within Your Means.”

I’m sure it would be enlightening to all participating.
