Who could forget the literal pasting that pro-union candidates got in the 2013 Douglas County School board election? With all eyes on DougCo, union candidates got a public wood shedding usually reserved for the likes of a U.S. Senate candidate. In case you’ve forgotten, PeakNation™, remember this doozy?
Is it any wonder, union forces are reportedly having a difficult time even finding candidates to run this go-round? But, the reform side isn’t having trouble finding candidates.
We assume union operatives will, in the end, find a functionary to carry their flag (water? bags of campaign money?). But after spending huge sums of cash to unseat the reform board last year, only to see their candidates get publicly undressed, it is not surprising that unions would struggle to find credible candidates this time around.
