Kristi Lacroix, a Wisconsin teacher, appeared in a political ad produced by education reform supporters of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. Now, her union is retaliating against her so harshly that she is considering quitting her job in public education because of the harassment.
As Kyle Walker says in the video, this is typical Alinsky tactics with a “fire Kristi” movement drummed up by union thugs to force the poor woman to quit her job. People that used to be her friends, used to be her coworkers are attempting to destroy her life just because of her political position.
Transcript of Teacher’s Statement
Lacroix: I’m not big on recalls and I think, at this point, in my opinion, and I’m only speaking from the “I,” it feels a little like sour grapes. It’s, you know, “we didn’t get our way, and so we want to change the outcome.”
The person who I’m going to stand behind and that is going to get my vote is the man or the woman that says what they mean, and means what they say, and it’s not about being popular, you know it’s not about getting the votes, it’s this is what’s right.
Scott Walker said from the beginning: “I’m going to do what’s right for Wisconsin.” And he did. He did.
What is it that is so eeevil that Gov. Walker has done for which teachers are now harassing this poor girl? Only asking for logical reforms like expecting teachers to pay a bit more into their pensions and healthcare and asking for some merit measure to calculate their pay.
After all, everyone else in the world gets pay and raises on merit. Why shouldn’t teachers? As it is Wisconsin teachers make more money on average than everyone else in the state.
The union, of course, is pretending that nothing is going on. They released a statement that pretends as if they care for their member’s opinions even if those pinions disagree with the left-wing, union line.
As an organization of educators, we respect the varying points of view of our colleagues. It’s unfortunate to watch Scott Walker divide the people of this state — often friends, co-workers, families and neighbors. When Wisconsin should be uniting, the governor is focused on dividing.
What a load. It is union members gathering to fire this poor woman, not Scott Walker.
