Police, Fire Fighters Picket Navarro Fundraiser

Council Member Nancy Navarro won last year’s District 4 special election with lots of labor support. But that did not stop members of Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 35 and International Association of Fire Fighters Local 1664 from picketing her fundraiser in Silver Spring’s Forest Glen Seminary yesterday. Navarro, along with the rest of the council, decided to furlough public safety workers after County Executive Ike Leggett recommended furloughs only for non-public safety employees. If the police and fire fighters will do this to Navarro, they will take on anyone. We have photos below.
