What's New at LPFFA 972
Hopefully, you are all aware, by now, about Proposition 3 on the Republican Primary ballot, regarding payroll deductions for union dues.
It has come to our attention, that the ballots will not read the same in all counties in the state. The question is the same, but the answer is different depending on the county you are in. Some are a For/Against answer and some are Yes/No. In an effort to make it easier for our members, we have compiled a list of the Texas counties, separating them into each of these two categories. If your county is not listed in one of the two, it is because they did not have a sample ballot on their website. Some did say, sample ballot coming soon, so if your county is not listed, I would urge you to check their website.
We have also developed social media signs, one for each answer, for our members to use on your social media sites.
We have also developed some talking points on dues check off/ payroll deduction, for you to use when talking to elected officials and others about this issues.
We want to strongly oppose this proposition. In an effort to show our opposition, we would urge all of our members to participate in a social media blitz. We are asking each of you to post, on all of your social media accounts, the appropriate sign for your area, on the following dates;
Today, February 8th
The signs, list of counties and talking points are all attached.
Please forward this email to all of your local members as well.You are welcome to post at any time, but these dates in particular, we would like to blanket social media with our signs. Help us get the message out and lets show our opposition in a big way.
