Fellow Retirees, I urge you to read the candidates statements posted on apwu.org. You will see that I am the only candidate for Director, Retirees Department who has taken a position opposing the “Medicare integration” provision of a House Committee postal reform bill. This would require Medicare eligible postal workers to enroll in Medicare Parts A, B, and D. I am opposed to having this choice taken from us. The administration, of which the current Retirees Director is a part of, is on record as saying they could support Medicare integration provided a number of conditions are met. That is why we must elect a Director who is not beholden to the administration and will stand up and fight for you.
I would also urge you to read the proposed constitutional amendment to Article 21 also posted on apwu.org. This amendment would abolish the NBA position previously held by the current Director prior to her appointment as Director, Retirees Department. The Constitution Committee recommends concurrence because “underutilization of current resources shows lack of need…” This leads me to the conclusion that the Director was not appointed to this position because of qualifications but because this movement creates an easy and bloodless way to abolish a not needed position.
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for all your support.
