" There comes a time in your
life, when you walk away from
all the drama and people who
create it. You surround yourself
with people who make you laugh.
Forget the bad, and FOCUS ON
THE GOOD. Love the people
who treat you right, and pray for
the ones who don't. Life is too
short to be ANYTHING BUT 
HAPPY. Falling down is part of
life, getting back up is living".

Officers need Assistance Upcoming Fundraisers 

The DPOA signed the new collective bargaining agreement.
The 8% pay increase will be evident on the pay check received on
November 14. Also on that check will be a "signing bonus" equal
to the 8% increase the membership should have been receiving
between August 27 (ratification date) and the effective date of the
contract. This "signing bonus" will be in lieu of retroactive pay
which is no longer allowable by state law. We thank you for your
patience and support in this long and frustrating process and
assure you we will continue to fight for the needs and rights of
our membership. As of October 3, 2014, the State Treasurer
signed the new contract. His, was the last signature required.
