The San Luis Obispo City Council should be ashamed. Ashamed. It is completely reckless and irresponsible the way you are trying to deceive the citizens of this city in regards to binding arbitration. Going on local radio, letters to the editor, etc., spewing half-truths as well as flat-out lies in an effort to scare people into believing you. You are like a big bully on the school playground who must have complete control over every situation. Binding arbitration is a fair process, which is why it exists and is only used when the bully refuses to be reasonable.
I am also appalled at the lack of respect you have for your public safety officers. It takes special men and women to do what police and firefighters do and I suggest each of you educate yourselves on what it takes to be one of these great people. They deserve every cent they are paid and you should be thanking them every time you see one of them for protecting and serving our city the way they do.
