Congrats to Frank, he is about to be named by the Obama Administration as a candidate to replace Hilda Solis as Labor Secretary. A big honor for Frank and great for the working man.

Franks answer for the fiscal cliff at local 2 was to raise the dues for all members to maintain his ability to stonewall the Feds with legal maneuvers and guess what in the long run it will fail. All will see what a pathetic leader he really is.

Brad we all know youre real sad
Frank is a man youre just a cad
Local 2 lost its weakest links
Your ability just plain stinks
Now youre on the outside looking in
All I can do is smile and grin
Theres no hope for you
Even youve been abandoned by your crew
Fat Tony is working at Carlsen
That kid to fell down the hatch and now your done
Your life is a shamble and a wreck
You belong in jail with Richard Speck
Youre a loser through and through
Youre wife would leave you if she knew
Buh bye you loser and yesterday's fad
You are just Brad the Sad

Destroying members that will choose to dissent
Will continue the corruption and never repent
The union is clogged with constipation
They destroy people for there recreation
The government moves at a turtles pace
The facts will be know, when they present their case
Its all about money and crooked elections
The cronys have spoke and made their selections
Companies want their money and will put up a fuss
We are all just pawns who get thrown under a buss
All for twelve dollars, such a crappy wage
If a union was smart they would enter that stage
Members lives will never be there own
Union officials just want to take a loan
IUEC is under CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION
They took all that money without hesitation
When you rob a bank it is still a Crime
The union officials are nothing but slime!!!!!

So Terry is a ship? You're not only sad but stupid too. You're wife must feel sorry for you, I'll bet she brings home stray animals too. But one day she'll wake up to what a loser you are and set you free. My advice is get a job any job, even working at Carlsen is better than laying around the house all day. All your buddies have moved on with their lives, now its your turn.

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 Frank always stood up for the local and would have never allowed the charges to be withdrawn.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.
