NATIONAL CONVENTION RECAP
What an exciting time the Kentucky delegation had at the national convention. Kentucky was blessed to have had several first-timers to the convention. John Hayes was a first time delegate. Sharon Gaddie, Eric Lockwood, Tanya Overbay, Cindy Shephard, Ashley New, Gail Hamilton, Sandy and Tony Holt along with Ann Molen paid their own way to come listen and learn. Monday was a day of committee meetings and the State of the Union update. Tuesday started with our Memorial Service and the call to order. Postmaster General Megan Brennan spoke to the crowd with praises of our hard work and to also talk about the future of the postal service. Our own Donna Cissell chaired the Credentials/Mileage & Per Diem Committee, which took up a lot of her time. Wednesday we started with Constitutions, we only had 15 to consider this year, well under numbers from the past. Frankie Hunt served on the Resolutions Committee, we had 6 Binding, with 198 non-binding to have amended or be voted on. In between all of these, was financial reports, nominations for national officers, legal responses and other awards presented. One award is the PAC Hall of Fame, Larry Baker, from Kentucky was the honored winner this year.Thursday was a continuation of the resolutions report and caucus was that night. Friday was election day with Jeanette Dwyer elected as President. Ronnie Stutts and Kent Stock were nominated for Vice-President, with Ronnie winning back the seat. Clifford Dailing is our National Secretary , Joey Johnson is Director of Labor Relations, David Heather is Director of Steward operations. Don Matson and Mike Atchesion were in the running for Executive Committeeman with Don winning back the position. On Friday afternoon all discussion turns serious as we hear from the Appeals Committee. This year we listened to 8. This is one time the delegates come together with one common thread. To listen and make decisions based on the facts presented by the committee. These can be voted down, amended or the most serious, someone can be banned from union membership. I see on some websites that some people think national convention is one big party, they couldn't be more wrong. It is a time of fellowship, seeing friends but is also a week of hard work. I urge you to become a part of this week next year, throw your name in the hat, get elected, you don't know the information you are missing.
PAC $13,041.47 was the grand total for Kentucky donations to PAC. Thank you to everyone for your generous giving to this worthy cause. Congratulations to former PAC Chair Larry Baker for his induction to the National PAC Hall of Fame at this years national convention. Each person is nominated and selected by their peers. His devotion to the PAC principles are ones we should all be following.
Thank you again for your generous contributions. This money will be put to good use on strengthening our craft with our state law makers.
