Blue Light Report - March / April 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I have dedicated my report to only one subject because I, along with Justin and the rest of my staff, agree it is the most value we can provide the clients. And we need to continue to capitalize on it now while the opportunity is at hand.

Blue Light Report Mid-Atlantic - January / February 2020

I am writing this report as I prepare to go to Tulsa for the union meeting. I hope you were able to attend. I applaud everyone who voted and mailed in their ballots. We have good, dedicated members who ran for these offices, and all our newly elected officers deserve your support.

The work in my area has slowed down over the past few months. There are still several jobs planned, but it’s looking like it will be early spring before they start. I want to encourage everyone again, if you haven’t already done so, to sign up on the Action Network and sign the petition for our jobs.  As you are aware, this is our future, and we need everyone to get involved to help get the required permits to go forward with the major projects that are waiting to start.

This new year is here, and the holidays are behind us.  I hope everyone had a good work season even though the work was slower than the last several years. We have large projects yet to start that are still waiting for permits. Hopefully, we will get these projects approved and can get started soon. I hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday season, and I hope to see you on the ROW soon.
