VICTORY FOR CHERRYBELL!
U.S. SENATE PASSES POSTAL REFORM BILL
The U.S. Senate today voted 79-19 for final approval of the Postal Reform Act of 2022.
The Postal Reform Act:
Eliminates the requirement that the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) pre-fund retiree health benefits for 75 years. Eliminating the pre-funding requirement will help shore up USPS finances and provide greater stability for the postal service and keep processing centers like Cherrybell open and running.
Shifts most medical costs for postal service retirees to Medicare.

Yesterday, our City endured a horrific attack by a troubled individual.
Ward 5 Council Member Richard Fimbres and his staff want to wish everyone and their families a happy and safe Fourth of July. Also a reminder to keep your pets safe from potential Fourth of July activities.
It is important during these times, to be mindful of the heat, careful using fireworks and please don’t drink and drive. If you choose to drink, please designate a driver, call a cab, use Uber or Lyft.
Also, if you are out and its raining, don’t drive through washes or flooded roads. Arizona has its stupid motorist law and it is strictly enforced.
