3410 50th St W
Bradenton, FL 34209
I would like to start out by saying what an honor it is to be asked to be your District 2 Representative. I have had the pleasure of meeting and knowing a lot of you in the district and look forward to meeting some new faces when I have the opportunity of attending your Branch meetings to share Legislative updates with you.
I worked for the Postal Service for 34 years before retiring in 2011. I have held many positions in my Branch 1753 including Secretary nearly 15 years, Vice President, President, Steward, and Trustee. I have been on the Safety committee, JRAP route count team, local negotiations as well as being CDL for District 16 for many years. I am currently released staff working on Labor 2016 until after the elections. I have been to Tallahassee and Washington, D.C several times to lobby members on the Hill and worked on the Vote By Mail bill that we were successful in getting past last year. I hope to see many of you at the training seminar in Orlando on October 13-16th.
On February 19th a district 2 meeting was held with 28 people present, representing Branches 1753, 2008, 5480, 1477 and 2072.
FSALC President AL Friedman gave opening remarks and introduced Branch Presidents and other guests present. Legislative bills covered by Chairman and CDL-16, Joanne Cannon included HB 15, HB 28, HB 31 and new bills now being introduced HB 756 and 760. Legislative Assistant Eddie Davidson also expanded on the bills and how they affect our future. Lunch was served and then RAA Don Lyerly presented chapter 2 training on route count and inspections. After training, we were introduced to a program on OWCP that provides names of Doctors in our area who participate in OWCP claims. Thanks to all who attended my first District meeting and a special thank you to branch 1753 for letting us use their hall and retiree Nancy Thurkettle for her help with food preparations.
