REPORT OF THE STATE TREASURER
By Michael Clark
I’d like to welcome the officers, delegates and guests to the 77th Biennial Convention of the Florida State Association of Letter Carriers. It’s been an honor to serve as your treasurer for the past 12 years. As I write this I processed over 200 vouchers for payment from August of 2021 through June of 2023. All were inspected by our fiduciary committee of President Al Friedman of Branch 2008, Secretary Cory Gibson of Branch 1779, and District 5 Chairman Percy Smith of Branch 4559. Twice a year an audit is conducted by our audit committee to make sure the books are in order. I’d like to thank Luis Rodriguez of Branch 5955, Joanne Cannon of Branch 1753, and Shane Ulbin of Branch 1091 for their due diligence examining the vouchers, check stubs, and bank statements for accuracy. All monthly payroll taxes, quarterly state reemployment tax,quarterly IRS 941s, yearly Federal unemployment tax, IRS 990 and the LM-3 for the Department of Labor have been submitted on time . All without hiring a CPA which saves the state association thousands of dollars every year. I offer assistance to any of the branch treasurers any time it is needed.
As a state officer I also attend the state officer telecons when scheduled and other state sponsored activities. The District 3 meeting in Orlando this year was very informative. The contract training our Region 9 Business Agent Eddie Davidson put together was as well. I attend my Central Labor Council meetings of the AFL-CIO in Cocoa and once again this year I went to Tallahassee to work with the Working Families Lobby Corps . Last year I spent 7 weeks in Warner Robbins, Georgia to help get Stacey Abrams elected Governor and Raphael Warnock Senator. With my team of Kevin Byrne, Shane Ulbin and Jacqueline Daly along with the other Central Georgia union volunteers, we were successful in getting Senator Warnock reelected and keep Democratic control of the US Senate.
In 2024 we will again have the most important election in our history. We need everyone to help. Canvass, phone bank, get people registered to vote. Whatever you can do. We need to have a Democrat in the White House. You remember Donald Trump’s attack on the US Postal Service when he was President? We cant let him get a second chance.
Again have a great convention here in Naples. Be safe and bring a lot of information back to your members,
Michael Clark, Treasurer.
