Black History Month

February marks the 97h anniversary of the creation of Black History Month. From the struggles of Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglas and the Buffalo Soldiers to the victories in civil rights that were led years later by individuals such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks, Black History Month has served as a time to remember those who fought hard to improve the condition of our great Nation, but to also preserve the rights and dignity for all of those who live in America.

Over the past several months, various friends, co-workers and constituents have asked me about my health after noticing me enduring some physical discomfort at certain times. The fact is that I have been dealing with severe back and shoulder pain for quite some time.

During this time, I have kept working at the office, and I have attended meetings, including Mayor and Council meetings, virtually, per my doctors’ recommendations.

VICTORY FOR CHERRYBELL!
U.S. SENATE PASSES POSTAL REFORM BILL

The U.S. Senate today voted 79-19 for final approval of the Postal Reform Act of 2022.

The Postal Reform Act:

Eliminates the requirement that the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) pre-fund retiree health benefits for 75 years. Eliminating the pre-funding requirement will help shore up USPS finances and provide greater stability for the postal service and keep processing centers like Cherrybell open and running.

Shifts most medical costs for postal service retirees to Medicare.
