The Cooks have been a problem in the local for a long time. They get away with too much. Now our officers are letting them off the hook, shame on them. Frank always stood up for the local and would have never allowed the charges to be withdrawn. The officers need to use Frank as an example. Its time to show the Cooks they are not above the law. Just like the Cook that sold the welder he is being held accountable in State Court it is time the Bill Sr and Jr be held accountable at the Executive Board. I want the officers to remember you need to be more like Frank and support the rights of all members and not bend to the pressure of the Cooks.

Did the cook do it ? Was the signature forged. The local will never know Danny don't have the spine frank had. This will allow other malcontents to rise up against the machine. Shame on you Danny for being gutless your tenure will be measured against franks legacy. Right now for being as tall as you are your coming up short brother.

A guy like Frank comes up but once in a lifetime. Dan is a nice guy but isn't Frank Christensen. I agree the members will not respect him for letting the Cook off the hook. But instead of the Cookie crumbling it was our officers. What a shame

Yes Frank has touched us all throughtout our lives at Local 2. He has given so much to others that his accomplishments are too numerous to mention. He rooted out the corruption at both Local 2 then at the International. Yes indeed a crusader like Frank comes but once in a lifetime. Its too bad that Frank still isnt at Local 2 because he wouldnt let the Cooks of the hook. I hope Welder Boy at Urban make a deal to make this go away. Frank would have never allowed this to happen.

Our friend Frank will rubbing elbows with our great President. When he gets confirmed as Labor Secretary you can bet your bottom dollar that he will find out the true identety of the sons of liberrty and there will be heck to pay. Companies will be shaking in their boots because Frank will have the full power of the federal government behind him.

Frank is on no one's payroll except the good members of the IUEC. He has proven himself time and time again and soon the IUEC's shinning star will be the Secretary of Labor. He will set the standard that all cabinet secretaries will be judged. A credit to all unions and credit to all american workers, a fair wage and benefits for all american workers will be his platform. He will have those Republicants bowing before him.
