e-LYNXX’ Gindlesperger Rallies Support for Public Printer’s Outsourcing Pitch
“The answer is in another question. When was the last time you got angry enough to actually call your Congressman and U.S. Senators and demand that the right thing be done for your industry? Until that happens, you and others within the printing industry will get what you have now.”
Gindlesperger said Boarman may be the first Public Printer in 30 years to truly understand the dilemma, the dynamics and the politics. “It is easy to ignore the problem, as so many Public Printers have done in the past, and to get kudos for improving production in GPO’s own printing shop. But Mr. Boarman seems willing to tackle the real issue. He would seem to be the right man in the right job at the right time. His influence and vision may result in finally reinventing GPO so its federal agency customers are better served, excessive printing costs are trimmed, GPO union ranks and the printing industry are both satisfied, and taxpayers get what they deserve,” he added.
“Admittedly, many were and some are still skeptical of an appointee with union ties as strong as Mr. Boarman’s. Yet, it is his experience, abilities to project, negotiate and understand that may in the end prove to be pivotal as he squares off to meet the challenge of restoring GPO’s rightful place as a respected partner with the printing industry.”
Gindlesperger concluded, “This is not about unions. They know how to take care of themselves. This is about having a vision for a better tomorrow. As Mr. Boarman said in his Facebook posting, the majority of the firms that the GPO deals with are small businesses, many with 20 employees or fewer. This is the true face of the printing industry and of America. Mr. Boarman's strong leadership is appreciated by those who care about GPO and its impact on the printing industry. Now, let’s see what Mr. Boarman, in concert with the printing industry, can actually accomplish.”
