Brother and Sisters,
We recently had nominations for the vacant positions of Trustee, Member at Large and Delegate to the Sacramento Central Labor Council. I want to congratulate Brother Jose Mares, he was nominated for Trustee and is our new Trustee to the Local 487 Executive Board. I also want to congratulate Brother Jason Shewmake on being elected as our newest Member at Large. Last but not least congratulations to Brother Harry Heinz on being elected as our Delegate to the Central Labor Council. Please take a moment to congratulate these guys when you see them.
I also want to take a moment to recognize Brother Robert Dorn. Bob, has been a member for 50 years and has recently received Gold Member status. This means Bob has been a member in good standing for 50 years straight with no breaks in membership. I am proud to say Brother Bob Dorn is a member of Local 487. He is currently superintendent for James L. Harris Painting and says he hopes to do so for a while longer. When you see Bob, take a moment to congratulate him.
Don’t Forget our meetings are every second Monday of the month at 5:30 pm. Next month we will be getting names for those interested in joining us for a Union Night for Local 487 members at a River Cats Game. We will be getting a suite for 20 and hope to get 20 members to attend. That will be at our next meeting on May 8, 2023. If you are interested, please join us at the meeting.
