Leopold: The story behind police unions 'no confidence' votes

In The Sun's news accounts of Police chief James E. Teare Sr. and the votes of "no confidence" by county police unions, a salient fact has been omitted. The first union vote of "no confidence" in mid-February was an expression of resentment regarding tight county budgets and the partial repeal of the county's binding arbitration law. Acting in the interest of county taxpayers, the decisions made regarding the budget and binding arbitration were made by the county executive, not the chief of police.
