The Middletown Press - News - 07/23/2005 - District spreads word on vote, 23 July 2005 [cached]
The union, using its own money, have been putting advertisements in newspapers to make people aware of the vote, said Local 3918 President Michael Osiecki.
"People have been calling about absentee ballots, but there is no provision," Osiecki said.
Osiecki commends the membership for making the concessions.
"These are tough economic times, but this is only a Band-Aid approach," he said.

Michael C. Osiecki
After a wonderful day with family and friends, Mike Osiecki passed away suddenly on Sunday, October 13, 2013. Born to Thaddeus and Vincentina Osiecki, Mike was raised in Middletown, CT, and attended Woodrow Wilson High School.
After his graduation in 1978, Mike entered the Marine Corps and proudly served our nation for more than 10 years. For the past 25 years, Mike served the citizens of Middletown with the South Fire District and was actively involved in his community. He supported many local charities and was always available to lend a helping hand to friends and family. Mike was pre-deceased by his parents and his aunt, Ann C. Fraulino.
Mike will be missed every day by his nieces: Kristin, Alyssa, Jennifer and Melissa.
Mike's extended family includes Mama Gaski; Lynn Gaski and her children, Chadd and Sarah; Scott Gaski and his girlfriend, Lucy, and Scott’s children, Christa, Savanna, and Coral.
Mike is also survived by his “best buddyâ€â€”Jack, his faithful Weimeraner. Mike also leaves behind his fellow firefighters at South Fire District, who have lost a brother. Mike began his firefighting service as a volunteer in 1977. On July 4, 1988, he became a career firefighter at Middletown’s South Fire District, a job he loved until his death. His commitment to the unions that built and serve our country was fierce and lifelong. As a member of Middletown Local 1073 International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF), he volunteered to be union steward for South Fire and took numerous classes on labor, health and safety issues. He served Local 1073 as Vice President and, when South Fire applied to form its own local chapter in 1998, Mike served as Local 3918 IAFF’s first president. In addition, Mike was a prominent member of Mickey Millane’s Fighting Third District of the IAFF; a member of the Executive Board of the Uniformed Professional Fire Fighters of Connecticut (UPFFA); and Sergeant-at-Arms at numerous IAFF conventions. Mike’s focus was the health and safety of all firefighters nationwide; he served as Chairman of the UPFFA Health & Safety Committee and as a member of the AFL-CIO Health & Safety Committee. He received a Political Activist Award in 2004 from the AFL-CIO for his outstanding work on behalf of union members. As a member of the Executive Board of IAFF 3918, Mike helped negotiate six contracts for the firefighters of South District. His other passion was Workers Memorial Day, and every year, he would attend events that supported the families of workers who lost their lives while doing their job. Mike was an avid biker and tremendously enjoyed his second family at Yankee Harley-Davidson. He proudly served the Connecticut Patriot Guard and West Conn Hog (Harley Owners Group). Mike was a wonderful cook, famous especially for his legendary ribs. He had a way with animals and kids, and all the children of his fellow firefighters and friends have special memories of being teased by Mike.
Anyone who knew Mike knew that his passion for life was contagious, and his personality was as big as the joy he brought into any room. In the words of one friend, “The only thing bigger than his mouth was his heart.†He left us much too soon, and he will be sorely missed. Calling hours will be held on Thursday, October 17, from 2-8 p.m. at D’Angelo Funeral Home, 22 South Main Street, Middletown. The funeral will be held Friday, October 18, at 11 a.m., St. Sebastian’s Church, 155 Washington Street, Middletown. Immediately following the mass, Mike will be laid to rest at St. Sebastian’s Cemetery in Middletown.

"I've been telling them since 1999, they've been doing it illegally," said Michael Osiecki, president of IAFF Local 3918, which represents the South Fire District firefighters."The by-laws say that you have to vote on the budget by a town meeting.They have been in violation of the by-laws since 1999."
The board has made a motion for the same attorney that presented the opinion to draft an amendment for the by-laws to allow voting machines, but Osiecki believes that only makes the problem worse.
"They have been doing something illegally for the last few years.If they amend the by-laws they are only condoning those illegal actions," says Osiecki.
Osiecki said a district the size of South Fire normally doesn't need a machine vote for the budget and a town meeting preserves the small town atmosphere of the area.
"We all know the people in this town.We see a lot of them on a regular basis," said Osiecki."We don't need voting machines, if you look at towns similar to ours in size, they all use a town meeting format."
Osiecki said he isn't even necessarily against the machines, but is more insulted on how the process is being ignored and the board is just doing as they please.He said he has brought the issue up on a regular basis, but his words have been constantly ignored until now.
Osiecki though isn't impressed by the numbers the machine elections have had in the past.Since machine votes have been implemented, the highest percentage the district has gotten out to vote was this year, when nearly 10percent voted on the second referendum.
The lowest percent-age was two in 2000 when only 158 out of the approximate 7,300 eligible voters came out to vote.
"How does 500 people out of 6,900 represent the majority," says Osiecki.
Osiecki and Roberts agree that the change in 1999 came about after the budget was turned down in 1998.
