Breaking News About GEMA

In a show of faith in current union leadership, the members of the Greenwich Municipal Employees Association (GMEA) voted down an attempt to bring the union under the umbrella of the Laborer's International Union of North America. By a 227 to 126 margin, with seven members voting to support neither, the membership voted to retain the current union leadership, which has come under fire recently as members have accused them of misusing union dues.

However, Charles LeConche, business manager for Connecticut's LIUNA chapter, told the Post that efforts to investigate GMEA President Rosalie Mastropaolo and the union's executive board would continue and he would be contacting both the State's Attorney's Office and the Internal Revenue Service.

More details will be available tomorrow at greenwich-post.com

Better Late Than Never

GMEA prevails in takeover bid by LIUNA


A message seeking comment from Rosalie Mastropaolo, GMEA's president for the past five years, was left at her home Wednesday night.

A takeover of GMEA would have meant that two-thirds of all municipal employees would be represented by LIUNA, which already consists of 415 middle managers.

"Before, it was us going after them. This time it was them coming after us," said Charles LeConche, business manager of the Connecticut Laborers' District Council, which is part of LIUNA.

Despite losing the vote, LeConche said the whole exercise was fruitful in uncovering a series of abuses of power by the GMEA leadership.

"Their name, GMEA, in Greenwich is mud now," LeConche said....

With The Greenwich Post On The GEMA Scandal


Two GMEA members contacted Greenwich police detectives last week to try to initiate a criminal investigation into the matter. They also claimed that the GMEA is broke and cannot afford to pay the fees of a lawyer that the union uses on retainer.

Mastropaolo denied any wrongdoing and said the union has $51,000 between its checking and savings accounts and three certificates of deposit to cover $29,000 in outstanding fees owed to Stamford lawyer Mark Santagata for labor-related matters.

But LeConche isn't dropping the matter, which he said he plans to bring up with the state's attorney's office and the IRS.

"If you break the law, you deserve to be prosecuted, and they broke the law," LeConche said. "It's not about winning an election."....

03/02/10 This Is Not About Greenwich, But Here Is A Reader Submitted Comments About Butter

I briefly researched authenticity of this article, it is verifiable via different sources, including Harvard School of Public Health.

Margarine has ALWAYS tasted yucky! Matter of fact has NEVER had any taste at all. P.L.

Pass The Butter.... Please. This is interesting.....

was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys. When it killed the turkeys,the people who had put all the money into the research wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back...
It was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow coloring and sold it to people to use in place of butter. How do you like it? They have come out with some clever new flavourings.
The difference between margarine and butter?

Read to the end!

Both have the same amount of calories.
Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at
8 grams; compared to 5 grams for margarine.

margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.

butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods..

Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few and
only because they are added!

tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavors of other foods.

has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than 100 years .

And now, for Margarine..

Very High in Trans
fatty acids.

Triples risk of coronary
heart disease.

Increases total cholesterol
and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol)and lowers HDL cholesterol,(the good cholesterol)

Increases the risk of cancers up to five times..

Lowers quality of
breast milk.

Decreases Immune response.

insulin response.

And here's the most disturbing fact..... HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING!

Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC and shares 27 ingredients with PAINT

These facts alone were enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means
hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance).

You can try this yourself:

Purchase a tub of margarine leaving it open in your garage or shaded area. Within a few days you will notice a couple things:

* No flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something)

* It does not rot or smell differently

because it hasn't any nutritional value;

nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weeny microorganisms will not find a home to grow. Why? Because it is nearly plastic . Would you melt your Tupperware and spread it on your toast?

Share this with your
friends..... (If you want to butter them up)!

Chinese Proverb:
When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.

Keep pounding the old Havemeyer Smoke House I'm sure, as you are, that there is some fire in there somewhere, It continues to amaze me how few of the people in Greenwich care enough to express opinions either way on things that should concern them like schools!
