"Here’s why three county unions are receiving generous raises"

From bethesdamagazine.com/bethesda-beat/ by Adam Pagnucco:

“County Executive Marc Elrich has given the county’s largest labor union its most generous contract in recent memory.  And he has paid for it with a one-time diversion from retiree health care money, leaving huge uncertainty on how his labor contracts will be funded in the future….MCGEO, the police union and the career firefighters all endorsed Elrich.  MCGEO additionally contributed $60,000 to the Progressive Maryland Liberation Alliance PAC, a mostly labor-funded super PAC which supported Elrich and opposed David Blair and Nancy Floreen.  Because Elrich was in public campaign financing, he could not accept a direct check from MCGEO….Elrich defeated Blair in the primary election by 77 votes.  MCGEO President Gino Renne told his shop stewards, ‘Marc Elrich won the primary thanks to our shoe leather.'”
