Finally—it’s President-elect Biden

Patience—counseled by former Vice President Joe Biden all election week as Americans waited for votes to be counted—finally paid off Nov. 7, four days after Election Day, when Biden won in Pennsylvania and gained enough Electoral College votes to acquire a new title: president-elect. AFT President Randi Weingarten says the union’s leaders and members “can’t wait to get started” on the work ahead “with an administration that will embrace and fight for the values we hold dear.”

New Executive Board, 2020-2022

August 30, 2020 -- No one was nominated for the following positions: President, Vice-President, Recording Secretary, and Communication Secretary. 

 

Without opposition, we elected Jaime McCarville as the Membership Secretary, Ed Berry as the Treasurer and the at large council members of Jeff Richter, Melissa Heinz, Johnny Widdicombe, Scot McCollough, D. J. Dixon and Barb Smith (a little uncertainty as whether there are 5 or 6  at large delegates). Mike Sadler is District #8 delegate unless a special election is held in that district. Jamie will do the work of the Communication Secretary along with the duties of the Membership Secretary. This group will decide the fate of the unfilled positions. 

Social Security 2100 Act

August 25, 2020:  In a recent Zoom Conference with Congressman Mark Pocan arranged by the Wisconsin Alliance for Retired Americans (WiARA), we learned that the House of Representatives have prepared a bill to strengthen and protect Social Security. 

The effort was led by Representative John Larson.  The bill would increase the cap for payroll taxes to $400,000, set a minimum benefit level and more.  The bill hasn't been introduced yet and is awaiting Speaker Pelosi's determination of the right time for introduction.
