Politics affects us all in our many lives from education of our children, the food placed on our tables to the gas that runs our cars so you can come to work. The US Postal Service and the NALC is also affected by what happens on Capital Hill and what happens there affects us.

It is very important for us all to give to the Letter Carrier Political Fund.
