Local Carpenters Donate to Disabled American Veterans

Donations for DAV were collected at Local 2’s annual picnic, which was organized by the Local 2 Member Action Committee (MAC). Funds were raised by general donations and activities at the picnic, including Local 2 member participation in a dunk tank. Read more »

Let Your Voice Be Heard

September 29, 2014
To the Residents of Monroe,

As one of the ‘Since1871’ facilitators of Monday’s public meeting regarding the old Monroe High School, I want to again thank the city and school representatives that made the time and effort to meet face to face with the public: Councilwoman Anna Hale, Councilman Steve Black, Councilman Todd Hickman, Councilman Dan Clark & Vice Mayor Suzi Rubin (who arrived late but with a good excuse – she was helping interview for our new police chief). I also want to thank George Long, Business Manager for Monroe Local Schools & Brett Guido of the School Board. I don’t think any of them were prepared for the direction of the meeting or what was being asked of them.

Our tiny group formed just 5 days ago. We passed out nearly a 1000 flyers in 2 days. We blasted social media and contacted the press. In the end, we filled the community room with 50 concerned citizens, 6 elected officials and 1 paid staff. I am pretty darn proud of that effort. Read more »
