U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek (D-Miami) was endorsed today by the National and Florida State Associations of Letter Carriers (FSALC) AFL-CIO for the 2010 U.S. Senate election in Florida.
"The members of the Florida Association of Letter Carriers AFL-CIO work in every community in all corners of our state," said Congressman Kendrick Meek. "These hardworking public servants help make up the fabric of our neighborhoods, they know our families, and provide an essential service to all Floridians. The men and women of this organization understand the meaning of hard work and witness firsthand the challenges our state is facing during these trying economic times."
Speaking on behalf of Fredric V. Rolando, President of the National Association of Letter Carriers AFL-CIO, Florida President Matthew "Matty" Rose of New Smyrna Beach said, "Congressman Meek has demonstrated an uncommon quality of leadership as a State Representative, State Senator and Member of Congress. Through a lifetime of public service, Congressman Meek has proven himself as an advocate of working men and women in Florida, and his decision to run for the United States Senate is applauded."
There are approximately 17,000 active and retired union letter carriers in Florida. Nationally, there are 300,058 active and retired members of the NALC, of which about 214,084 are active city delivery letter carriers employed by the U.S. Postal Service.
