I just saw the Peabody police on TV sayng it wasn't about the money. If it isn't about the money, why don't they take the day off without pay?

MANNY COSTAS of the Peabody Police said "we didn't think".. and .... "it wasn't so much because of the financial benefit"

You are right MANNY,YOU did NOT THINK

How about working for FREE on that day and DONATING the salary to a charity organization ?

After all, its NOT about "YOUR" FINANCIAL BENEFIT, RIGHT ?

What a disgraceful state, and a distasteful police force and union

Enough extra bonuses and holidays for public servants. ENOUGH! You wait 7 years then decide you want to "honor" 9/11 by making it a psid holiday!?!? BS!

Vote Yes on Question 1 and help stop this waste.
