Only in government can you have a lose and call it a gain as reported as follows by a previous poster. Directly from the CGR report "Moreover, the County Home is not the major drain on taxpayers that many have assumed.....Even factoring in the County match required to draw down the IGT funds, the County Home has generated a small average net annual surplus of about $110,000 per year since 2007"

Paying in a couple of millions and then having a return of 100K any private busy would be out of business in a short period of time.

with one annoying phone call the csea has lost what little empathy i had for them and their issue. i now hope they lose both votes. i also hope it cost the union plenty of $ too.

Really such a drain on the taxpayers?

where did you get this information? Who is trying to mislead us?

Directly from the CGR report "Moreover, the County Home is not the major drain on taxpayers that many have assumed.....Even factoring in the County match required to draw down the IGT funds, the County Home has generated a small average net annual surplus of about $110,000 per year since 2007"

Who is out to mislead us? who is making numbers up trying to tell us it is costing us $9,000 a day when in fact there is a SURPLUS of money.

ru4real...we are being held hostage..but not by the CSEA..but by those who will mislead us..even try to change the laws..just to get their way. To me that is insulting and appalling.

If these calls really to say "Chautauqua County work force" then they are grossly misrepresenting that group of individuals. There are many non-CSEA employees of the County that do not agree with the CSEA's stand on the County Home.

CSEA DIRTY TRICKS AGAIN!! "A phone call from The Post-Journal to David Fagerstrom, CSEA Chautauqua County Unit president, confirmed that the calls are coming from the CSEA Western Region Office." Maybe it is time the property taxpayers of NYS should set up a computer that pushes for "right to work" and "no collective bargaining" legislation for public all NYS public unions. Once again the 500 pound Garilla has shown himself in the room in our little county. Everytime there is a public taxpayer vote the CSEA Union comes in with its vote no signs, imported picketers, glossy mailers, and computer generated calls to stiffle the silent majority of taxpayers. Time to break thier power hold and shut them down.

The CSEA isn't worried about the residents of the nursing home. All they are worried about is their enormous salaries and pensions. They certainly don't care about the tax payer. Sell the home!!

If CSEA gave the money back to the taxpayers that is spent on phone calls, matching T-Shirts, lawn signs etc. perhaps the CCH wouldn't be such a tax drain.
