Retirees’ Department Members! You should have, or will very soon, receive your mailed ballot for APWU national officers. Allow me to remind you that the right for retired APWU members took 5 national conventions, 10 years, to attain the right to vote for certain national officers! Even before that; it took 3 conventions and 6 years for the right to elect our own Director! It was often a brutal battle to win that right. I know! I authored both Resolutions that were finally adopted after repeated rejection!
Winning that hard-earned right for retired APWU members to vote is only half the battle! The rest is up to each eligible voting retired member to VOTE, and VOTE informed and wisely. To that end, and with respect for my years of active (33 years) an 24 years of Retiree Involvement, I endorsed the following candidates: Debby Szeredy, Executive Vice-President, Judy Beard, Legislative/Political Director. John L. Marcotte, Health Plan Director. Joe Gordon, Retirees Department Director.
