Letter: Lead like a leader

Heck, Ed Cruz, the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority union head of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1774, shot off his mouth like gangbusters at the recent RFTA board meeting I attended (“RFTA union concerned about Glenwood traffic,” Aspen Daily News, May 14).

I wondered what he expected the RFTA board to do about a Colorado Department of Transportation and city of Glenwood Springs problem and his panic about road rage becoming a RFTA driver problem.

Cruz is a union leader. Shouldn’t he be smart and courageous enough to take his worries and solutions to CDOT and the Glenwood Springs City Council and its temporary city manager?

I’d like to see the guy have a transit-union representative attending every RFTA board meeting.

Also, I’d like Cruz get union-hip and talk with union leaders in the region and the post-office union member on the Carbondale Board of Trustees.

Start cruising, Cruz. Being a union man is 24/7/365. Get with the unionist-leader program like solving the damages from work schedules that badly influence your union members’ health and emotions.
