    Teach the MEA a lesson - Vote "NO" on Paul Scott's recall

    Crossposted on my blog under title "Teach the MEA a lesson - Fiani and Rassel for Brighton School Board, and "NO" on Paul Scott's recall"

    The MEA has spent in the six figures going after Paul Scott because they don't like him. Most state rep races around here are about $25-40K, although they are higher in the 51st District. This is still an extremely large amount of money. If the MEA is so "pro-kids," why is it spending $120K+ going after Paul Scott. That money can go towards school districts instead of politics.

    We can't let the MEA leadership and their shady tactics have the win. No on the Paul Scott recall.

    Close to home in the Brighton School District, the MEA supported candidates are Bill Trombley and unofficially Beth Minert. I say unofficially because Minert is an MEA PAC donor, but does not want their endorsement because she is concerned about a backlash. Trombley wanted it and got it. Nick Fiani and Greg Rassel are the best choices.

    However, there's more. There always is with an organization and its local affiliates ripe with Intolerance, questionable mailings, and outright lawbreaking.

    How many folks in the Brighton School District got a postcard mailing from the Brighton Education Association? On it, it says "Paid for by Brighton Education Association." However, there is no PAC by that name listed at the County Clerks office, nor the Michigan Secretary of State. The BEA did it again.

    It's time to teach the MEA and their affiliates a lesson for their intolerance, shady politics, and lawbreaking.

    Rough night in Brighton and the 51st (none / 0) (#1)

    Brighton? Minert and Trombley.

    District 51?  232 votes short.

    I have to admit, Rep. Scott was gracious in statement of defeat.

    Call it what you will, this is more... (none / 0) (#3)

    ...of a wake up call for the Mi-GOP.

    Blissfully wishing that the TEA Parties and 9/12 groups will come rushing to your aid, after you have thrown us under the bus for your abysmal voting record, hopefully (though, I really doubt it) will come to an end.

    It should also serve as an example to take a closer look at the party's standard bearer.

    After all, just look at the spectacular job he did of tirelessly defending Scott's record.
