Lily123, which County department do you work for? Just a hunch.... Actually, I hope you are a County employee because that would make your position almost plausible. If you're not, then you need to educate yourself on just what "level" of wages, benefits and job security the County workers already receive. If you measure respect by large employment numbers and wages/benefits far above private sector then the County employees are down-right revered! Only an empty-headed brain-washed union member would take heart in Ron John's rhetoric.

Hacksbgone: We need to set a level for the future, we have to treat our county workers with respect, yeah and attracting new jobs and employers to the region is good but if we cant keep the old ones thats just the same as losing more jobs. and more of the same of last 7 years

Of course Ron John supports jobs in the County! Who wouldn't? That's one-half of the tried and true political catch phrase "more jobs, lower taxes." Except he didn't say the lower taxes part and he didn't offer any explanation for the job losses. Nor did he offer ideas to create more jobs. However, he said an awful lot about his allegiance to unionized workers and even strategized about settling their labor deals. I don't see how that creates more jobs for the unemployed.

Anyone who knows Ron knows he was a card carrying union loving deputy sheriff who took his full reirement as soon as he could. Now he wants to come back for a second or is it third dip (he was an elected judge in Fredonia area). He was pro-union and will always be pro-union which is not a totally bad thing BUT you need backbone to look your former colleagues square in the eye and see no increased wages and real backbone to try to get the rank and file to pay for a bit more of their extremely generous benefit packages. Ron's a nice guy but not the right guy to be running the County.

Looks like ol' Ron John is a hard core labor loving Democrat after all. It sounds like his main focus upon taking office would be to get the County unions the deal that they want. Hmmmm. I don't think we can afford this guy running the County. He's buying votes and that does nothing to improve the County for all of it's citizens.
