Seward will not support tax hike for Manor

(Continued)

He said he has received about 20 to 30 emails from county residents weighing in on the plan, and those in favor outnumber opponents by about 10 to one.

As for whether his colleagues on the board would back it, he said, “I’ve gotten the sense that some reps want to give the plan a chance, and that’s why I’m calling this a framework and not a proposal.”

The union representing Manor workers, the Civil Service Employees Association, has voiced opposition to the privatization push. But the union has yet to embrace the Kosmer plan, which calls for the union to make significant contractual concessions, in order to make the home more affordable for the county to manage.
