President’s Message

JUNE 2014
(CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD ENTIRE JUNE NEWSLETTER)

 

I would like to thank all of you who attended the Police Memorial ceremony at the Rockland County Courthouse. The turnout was impressive with over 20 members in attendance.

I wish I could say the same about Lobby Day. The turnout was poor. We were better organized this year, but had limited time to visit the legislators. Board members were given index cards to see specific representatives. Unfortunately, none of them were there, but we managed to sign their book and let them know we were there. If you did not make this event, you can still make a phone call. Retirees have no official representation at the bargaining table. Police unions represent active members only; the only people that can protect your benefits are the legislators. On page 2 we have reprinted the list of legislative people. Please save this list. You, your family and friends should give them a call regarding the bills below:

1. Health Insurance Protection bills, Senate: S367 Lanza, Assembly: A902 Weprin

2. COLA Enhancement bills, Senate: S6785 Golden, Senate: S6787 Golden

3. Veterans Supplementation bills, Senate: S6820 Larkin, Assembly: A7479 Benedetto

Note: We support all legislation that benefits police officers.

Try to attend the National NYCPD 10-13 annual convention August 1-3. The accommodations include breakfast lunch and dinner. Spirits, beverages, etc. are provided in the Nationals exclusive hospitality room. You will get to meet a lot of old friends and make some new ones as well.

At our September meeting we will have a guest speaker, Susan Branam, Deputy Director, County of Rockland Veterans Administration.

Hope to see you Wednesday June 18, 2014 @ 6:00 PM our annual picnic meeting at the Kearsing Edwards American Legion Post #1600.

Fraternally,

Lou Massaro
President
