Letter to editor: vote for Lamb for state representative

Dear Editor,

Government regulations are hurting our local businesses.? I was disappointed to learn that Rep. Dykema voted to force home daycare centers into a state employee union.? She'sl say they are not forced, but the state takes the money out of the voucher whether they join or not.? These are small women owned home daycares that are being hurt.

These small businesses have opposed being in the SEIU for 8 years.? Instead of the legislature accepting that decision, they passed legislation to force them to pay union dues.

Rep. Dykema's vote was anti-small business.? The large corporate daycare centers like Kindercare are exempt.

Worse yet, it will cause the rates for parents to increase, and more so cause them to close their doors.? This hurts parents and children who rely on trusty local daycares.

On November 6th we can do better.? Vote Marty Lamb for State Representative.

  1. I couldn’t believe this when I read it. Then I did my own research. This author is correct. Dykema DID vote to force small mom and pop daycare centers to have to pay union dues. What’s even worse…they don’t get any benefit from that!!! It’s sickening that Carolyn says one thing to her constituents and then does the opposite on Beacon Hill…where she thinks we won’t find out. We HAVE found out…vote her OUT!

  2. Forcing people into unions is not just anti-business, it’s anti-freedom and, frankly, unAmerican. Why aren’t people allowed to be pro-choice when it comes to unions?
