Dan, You need to do some fact checking on you statements. You keep using Chief Hughes as an example on why to vote yes on Issue 2. Here are some fallacies with your example:1. Police and fire chiefs are NOT union members.2. Your numbers are still way off any ways. You state that Chief Hughes received $564,000 upon retirement. See http://www.tribtoday.com/page/content.... There is a big difference between $65,539 and $564,000. If you are considering his DROP payout, then be honest and say that it cost the tax payer $0. It is a reinvestment of his retirement earnings. And what he did receive was due to being a good steward of tax dollars and using his sick time diligently.3. Public employees are compassionate and do understand the current economic climate. We have made many concessions, taken pay freezes, paid more into our healthcare. The reason I went into public service (and the majority of others that have) is to help their communities. Your letter is full of half-truths and outright distortions of reality. Please step away from the Kasich-Aid!
