IEA wants you to support benefit cuts. End of discussion. Comments are closed. UPDATE.
I got the usual weekly email link to the IEA website featuring the usual Vimeo of IEA head lobbyist, Jim Reed.
No matter our differences, Jim and I have always had cordial conversations.
I got the notice on my iPad. The iPad layout of the IEA website is different than the one I see on my MacBook.
When I got to the bottom of the post, it said “Comments Are Closed.”
I went my MacBook.
It doesn’t say “Comments Are Closed.” But there are no comments.
Comments on earlier posts haven’t exactly been running heavily in support of the We Are One/Cullerton SB2404.
Some of my readers have told me that their critical comments never see the light of day on the IEA website.
I don’t bother to even try anymore.
But shutting it down the weekend before the final week of the General Assembly?
Nobody in the office?
Did they go fishing?
IEA NEA Board of Director Tom Tully contacted me to say he checked on the situation. IEA Communications Director Charlie McBarron told him it was a “simple oversight,” and would be corrected.
