District-2 Report


4th Quarter

I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  A new year is just what we need in the term of getting everyone involved in the legislative process.  While attending the Texas State Association of Letter Carriers (TSALC) board meeting in September John Beaumont trained the board on how to sign carriers up for the Letter Carrier Political Fund LCPF).

This training will enable members on the board to be able to sign up letter carriers for the LCPF.

With the ability to sign letter carries up for the LCPF this will give letter carriers the opportunity to support people that are fighting to protect our jobs. The effort would be just to help out the Letter Carrier Political Fund Coordinator assigned to the various Districts. I am very thankful to have Ron Stover, Letter Carrier Political Fund Coordinator assigned to District 2.  Since taking on this assignment Ron have been talking with and signing up carriers that would like to contribute.

It is very important that members realized it is going to take work in 2018 in order to see a change in the legislative made up in 2020.  We can see some change from the November 2017 races that created upsets in several races around the country. We must keep organizing in an effort to ensure a victory during the mid- term elections. We need to start work now.

The District 2 Meeting will be held on Sunday, April 15, 2018.  Listed below is the location and time of the meeting.

Holiday Inn Express South

I would like to take this opportunity to invite all carriers to become involved in the political process. Please call the hotel to make any room reservation. Hope to see you in April.


In Solidarity
