Treasurer's Report

Report for the Months of April – June 2018 

This Quarter has been great dealing with our finances, the Savings Account gets a little Tax Free Income each month (Interest) and of course the Convention Fund just stays the same, the Checking Account is doing great we had four deposits from National this quarter.  The State has really been doing an outstanding job getting Letter Carriers signed up in the LCPF (Letter Carrier Political Fund).  Some State Officers have gone to different NALC Branches to talk about the LCPF.  The State has also been paying the LCCLS for turning in their Quarterly Reports.  I believe all the money we have spent going to Branches has been well worth it and the LCCLS are out there dealing with their Representatives and keeping them informed about the USPS.  From what I know, being Treasure, Homer Hernandez (Vice-President) has really been working hard to sign up Letter Carriers in LCPF.  Homer has sign up about 33 Carriers and that means money to National to protect Letter Carriers jobs and our Future.  Any money that the TSALC spends on State Officers and LCCL’S to push the important facts about the USPS to Congress, is money worth being spent.  The State has spending a lot of money since the new program was started, going to Branches to get the word out dealing with Legislation and signing up Carriers (LCPF) and it is working.  Our Books are looking outstanding for the year of July 01, 2017 through June 30, 2018.  Let’s just say we are carrying more over in our checking account then I though we would (the Budget).  The TSALC did not go the D.C. this year and that saved the state some money, we should be going in 2019.

The TSALC is doing great.

March 2018 Report

The State is doing great dealing with our finances for this quarter.  We had a school in the month of February (Spring School) for the LCCL’s and a lot of the LCCL’s showed up.  We had a little problem getting the class started but everything work out great.  The State has started a new program dealing with the Board Members.  Each one of us will be going to different Branch Union Meetings to encourage Union Members to sign up for the LCPF (Letter Carrier Political Fund).  This fund is to protect all Letter Carriers Future when it comes to working for the Postal Service.  We need some one at the Nation level to fight for our Benefits, Retirement and our future so that we all can have a secure and enjoyable life.  Who can protect us so that we can live a good and secure life during our time at the Postal Service and during our Retirement?  None other than the NALC who is always there fighting for us at the National Level.  The best way for the NALC to protect us is by giving to the LCPF since it takes money and time to get things done in Washington D.C. (Congress).  We all know that the NALC does a outstanding job fighting for all Letter Carriers and all one has to do is look at the Benefits we have as Letter Carriers when it comes to our jobs and retirement.  The NALC has always fought hard against the Postal Service and as a Union Member we have paid our dues so that they could keep the fight going, since it takes money and a strong Membership to win.  So when you contribute to the LCPF you are contributing to your FUTURE, so I like to call it the LCFF which means LETTER CARRIER FUTURE FUND since it comes down to what type of Future you want.  I want my future as a retiree to be an outstanding future and that is why I give the LCPF.  Think about this, what kind of job and future would any of us have with the U.S.P.S. without the NALC fighting for us.  THINK ABOUT IT, GIVE TO THE LCPF.

December 27, 2017

Well it looks like 2017 will end great. Our two checkbook balances looks good and we are right on budget in fact I do believe our budget will look outstanding in June 2017 the end of the TSALC year. We should have a outstanding carry over. All W-2s, all IRS Forms (941, 940) and the State Unemployment will be completed by the end of the year. All state and federal tax will be paid on time. My October 2017 through December 2017 financial report will be completed no later than January 03, 2017, remember give Kathy time to make copies of the report so that they can be mailed to all of the Branches. I hope everybody had a very merry Christmas and that all of you have great New Year.

September 30, 2017

The State has done great with their finances during the months of July through September 2017. The State is on track with the budget and if you look at the budget we should carrier over the amount that was stated. It looks like the State will be carrying over funds every year. Now that the State pays Per-diem (hotel & meals) we can keep our cost down and I want to thank the Members of the State for passing the By-Laws. As your Treasure I am making sure YOUR money is being spent as it should be. The State took a small lost on the 2017 State Convention and that happens sometime and it was no fault of any Board-member, we had to give a few refunds back to some Delegates that had to be some where else during the Convention and that hurt the bottom line. The State had a Board Meeting in San Antonio, Texas in September, the books were audited by four of the Board-Members and every thing came out great. Our next Boarding Meeting will be at the Spring School and so will be the next audit. I will be sending my report to Kathy on Monday (October 2, 2017) I am still waiting for the bank statement (Sept 30, 2017) once I get it I will E-mail the report to Kathy so that she can get it mailed out, give her time to make copies. I am sure I will see a lot of you at the Spring School. REMEMBER IT IS YOUR MONEY AND YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW HOW THE STATE IS SPENDING IT, READ THE QUARTERLY REPORTS.
