" 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".

DPOA Notices
The officers of the DPOA signed the new collective bargaining agreement today in the office of Mayor Mike Duggan. The agreement now must be signed by the state which is expected to occur within the next 48 hours.

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 the membership.
