4th Quarter Report 2018

Hello Fellow District Six Members

 

Its time for the 4th quarter report, let me start by saying Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all the members of the Texas State Association of Letter Carriers. Once again, the state board members have been busy visiting branches working to inform them of the Letter Carrier Political fund, and attempting to help them sign up new members. The overall numbers show that our work is paying off as they continue to move upwards. National has set a goal for Texas to have 10% of its members to be signed up by the end of 2018. With everyone’s help, were getting close, so if you know of anyone we can sign up, contact your Branch President or any State Board Member. Since my last newsletter I have visited Austin for their Branch Fish Fry, where I was able to present a plaque to brothers Frank Arldt and Les Doss for their years of service to the State Association. I would also like to say, on a personal note, that I learned a lot about legislation from these 2 people.  I hope that these 2 folks continue to spread all their wisdom.

I was also invited to attend a Bowl-a-thon the Waco Branch held over the Veterans Day holiday. The local branch signed up 5 members for the Letter Carrier Political Fund. Way to go guys!  I was also invited to attend the once-a-month Retiree luncheon in Austin, where a 60-year membership card was awarded, as were several 50-year cards.  Fellowship and a great lunch were had by everyone. I also attended the branch meeting that same night and want thank Brother Les Doss and Branch President Alberto Aponte for their kind invitation.  

As you can tell it’s been busy, so I am going to take a little break during the Holidays, rest up and hit the ground running in 2019, as it promises to be busy starting in January.  The Presidents meeting in Denton, the N.B.A. school in February in San Marcos, the Washington D.C. legislative trip in late February or early March, the District 6 school in April in Austin and the State Convention in June in Denton. Somewhere in there, I’ve got to work on my golf game. In closing, I want thank everyone for their help this year and for putting up with me.
