It appears city firefighter union leader Joe King was no more successful in pleading for the Great InsolvenCity Parking Garage Sale at council chambers today than have been the other union leaders sent to scare council members -- Council President Darlene Harris, in particular -- during recent months.
Before anyone listens to a word from Mr. King (left) on this subject, he should be compelled to answer this question: Where were the union leaders when the pension fund on which their unions' members rely was being dissipated by politicians (and their cronies) year after year after year? (Other than sucking down the free Ahrns at fundraisers for those politicians and at parties thrown by those cronies, of course.) The evidence indicates Mr. King and his colleagues have failed to protect pension funds for many years; is there any reason to believe they have changed course?
