John Unger's locality pay rallies

From an email:
IMPORTANT - Senator Unger has been working tirelessly to get locality pay for State workers. He has succeeded in getting a 15% across-the-board increase for Department of Highway workers. He is still working hard to get teachers, state troopers, and all local State workers that same increase. We MUST support him in his effort!

There will be 2 Rallies this week in support of Senator Unger's effort to get Locality Pay for ALL State workers.

Senator Unger, Delegate Bob Tabb, and Delegate Locke Wysong will be attending --->

Wednesday, July 27 - 7-9pm - T.A. Lowery Elementary School just off of Route 9 in Jefferson County at 55 Shenandoah Junction Road, Shenandoah Junction.

Thursday, July 28 - 7-9pm - Orchard View Intermediate School, Delmar Orchard Road off of King Street extended, Martinsburg.

In the last Blair report, Craig said that the issue was not a party issue and everyone of our representatives supported locality pay, and that he would be at the rallies. I was at the rally last night and he was not. I guess he has flip-flopped on this issue like he did the pension bond.

I can understand his not being at this rally since he does not represent the people in Jefferson county, even though he does have aspirations of doing so, but I can not understand where Senator Yoder was. Representative Duke from Berkeley and Morgan showed up but our own Senator did not. I for the life of me can not see why the Republicans are trying to make this a Democrat/Republican issue when it is a fairness issue. We need all of our representaives to show up and say state workers can afford to live in the Eastern Panhandle and we are not going to take it any more. Charleston is either going to be fair with us or we are going to sue.

I would like to send out a big Thank You to Senator Unger for bringing this issue to the forefront and for Delagates Tabb, Doyle, Wysong, and Duke for actually showing up to hear your constituents concerns and voice your support.

Blair is trying to take credit for Unger's work. Not a surprise since Unger's a terrific legislator and his ties to Manchin gets things done for the Panhandle.
