I hope, any renovations for the schools or new school is done by local union workers!Keep work here. Why should some outfit out of town get the job? and no- union workers? At least our local workers are drug tested, and pay there dues!They pay tax dollars to be residents here.This could be work, for a while instead of laid off workers! Something to think about,,,,,, concerned tax payer!!Mayor Alcombright please think of your local union workers.Why should they travel, be away from family all week, spend all there pay in gas, motels, and food!Your thoughts and comments are welcome.

Why should only Union workers be guaranteed jobs? All local workers should be granted a spot for a job. I don't know of one Union that drug test's their members. If they did they probably couldn't man a job

Yes have union worker's do the job! You want more bang for your buck!! We make twice as much as the non union workers for doing the same quality of work. People always say use union workers when the tax payers money is involved. When it is their money from their budget i wonder if they would hire union workers to do a job on their home etc. if it would cost twice as much? They would shop it around for the best price!!!

As usual Clark is wrong. Non-union people can be used as long as they are paid the prevailing wage.

You mean we should hire the same union pigs who buy Chinese products at WalMart instead of American made products at a higher priced outlet? When those selfish f ucks start helping us, maybe we'll think about helping them.
