I want to learn more by going to my first National Convention in 2024. Help me, help you make the post office great again! Vote Rachel Reeves! Thank you!

SUSAN HITCHCOCK  - Hello, I’m Susan Hitchcock a Rural Carrier at the Rock Island, TN post office, and I have just reached my 10-year anniversary. I started out at the Spencer, TN PO as a TRC in May 2010 and became an RCA when those positions were eliminated. I’ve been elected as my county’s Sec/Trea twice, once as the county’s Vice Pres, twice as the county’s President, and served as a state delegate three times. Recently, I completed certification training as my office’s local steward. I’m excited to address concerns and resolve conflicts as they occur. I don’t take for granted the rights our predecessors fought for, yet it’s important to continue to make sure all our voices are heard. I’m a fighter and a diplomate. I look forward to voicing this state’s ideas and problems at the next convention. I would appreciate your vote for the TN National Delegate.
