Default State Printer Decides Election Date? Unions in Action

Thanks to the high cost of unions, the State of California might have a special election in July, not June.

"Gov. Brown should consider using a non-union printer for the ballots – one that will print the last minute changes and send ballots to the counties with a fast turnaround time… like the printers used during election season.

“I get my campaign material printed fast,” said Huff. “But, there’s no union bug on it either.”

Tucked under the protective arm of the Department of General Services, the Office of State Printing (OSP) is responsible for printing for the state, cities and counties, including the election ballots.

But not all printing for the government is done by OSP – many state agencies contract out with privately owned printing companies in the state – even to some (gasp) non-union printers! California and specifically Sacramento has a plethora of privately owned printing companies, able to print any sized project.

OSP is a member of the Allied Trade Printers International. The “rules” for printing are lengthy – and so is the time it takes to get a printed project out of their door."

Does Jerry Brown really want a special election, or is this another way he has of paying off his union owners.

We know the people will say NO to $50 billion in new taxes. So, the bottom line is this is a Democrat payoff to unions.

Shame on us for allowing this waste of our tax dollars to pay off unions.
