Negotiator files complaint vs.Chariho school board member By Chris Keegan Westerly Sun – September 21, 2007.  



  1. The complaint seems to reference the Sept 14 post

  2. Funny how The Rag is able to quote you off the website, but chose not to include Petey’s juvenile attack on you.

    I guess the issue centers on self idenitified union members posting their viewpoints here? Strange, but I haven’t seen any of them tell us who they are, so who’s to say they are actually union members? Does Mr. Gingras know who they are?

    For that matter, who’s to say that the poster calling himself PeteGingras is actually the real Pete Gingras? That would explain why the poster wrote like a teenager…maybe it was a teenager?

    You continue sharing information with the public Mr. Felkner. You’ve posted nothing specific about the negotiations and other than media accounts that things are not going well, I have no clue where negotiations stand or what is being proposed. Apparently Mr. Gingras can blab to the media whatever he wants, but he feels you shouldn’t share your general views with us here?

    I have faith that you will stand strong against wasting more taxpayer money, and I imagine this is why they are once again trying to silence you. Keep communicating Mr. Felkner, the jig is up.

  3. In reading The Rag article again, I see they credit you with writing that Mr. Gingras wore a button that read, “I don’t want to strike, but I will if I have to”.

    I only recall you asking the Mr. Gingras poster (who knows if it was really Mr. Gingras?) what his button read. He never answered to my knowledge. Did The Rag get this wrong or did I miss it?

  4. Nope – it was Kari with the quoted button.
