Police, Fire Fighters Picket Trachtenberg Again

International Association of Fire Fighters Local 1664 and Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 35 enjoyed picketing Duchy Trachtenberg’s campaign kickoff so much that they decided to do it again last night, this time at her joint fundraiser with Marc Elrich at McGinty’s. The unions were careful to make clear that they were picketing Trachtenberg and not Elrich. While the two unions have picketed other Council Members, Trachtenberg has provoked them in particular with her last-day introduction of a disability bill, her slamming the county’s entire public employee labor movement and her decision to cross the unions’ picket line in the past. Following are pictures of the picketers along with a special guest.

“Duchy Furloughs Working Moms”

“Why Doesn’t Duchy Support Women Candidates?”

“Don’t Furlough My Daddy”

Ike Leggett Crosses the Picket Line

“Duchy Voted for a Man to Have 4 Bodyguards but Abused Women to Have None”

This was fun, everybody! Let’s do it again!
