HGEA boss makes more than Governor
By Jonah Ka`auwai @ 9:46 PM :: 6789 Views :: Energy, Environment

The greedy union bosses are doing it again, blatantly misleading the public with statements to the media.  Last night, Randy Perreira, HGEA Union Boss, told the public:

“Our members don't make nearly as much as the governor,” said Perreira.  “She makes three times of what the average state worker makes.  She gets free rent (and) free medical, so clearly we're not talking (about) an apples to apples situation.”Click here to read the article @

In truth, Randy Perreira makes over $150,000 a year on dues from union members!  Randy knows he clears at least $25,000 a year more than the Governor, herself, who is taking a voluntary pay cut and furlough.  In typical, arrogant, Union Boss fashion, Perreira fails to mention that he isn't taking any pay cut, himself, nor is he offering to reduce the monthly dues for the hard-working rank and file to ease the hardship.  With these greedy bosses, it's always, "Do as I say, not as I do!"

Please help the Republican Party continue to inform the public that these Union Bosses do not represent the best interest of their members or the people of Hawai'i. 

If you are a member of a public workers union, tell your leadership that enough is enough - - when are YOU going to make a sacrifice? 

Call and email your state representatives, especially the Democrat puppets that these Union Bosses manipulate, and express your disgust with the way the Union leaders are pulling their strings.  Tell them you'll remember this at the ballot box! 

And, keep those letters to the editor and phone calls to the radio shows coming, to give the rank and file union members support that Republicans are trying to ease the pain through this economic crisis for everyone - - not just the greedy Union Bosses, who continue to deny that we're all in this together.
