Eighty-seven years ago today, a great American, humanitarian, and civil rights activist was born; Martin Luther King, Jr. In his far-too-short life, the Reverend Dr. King appealed to the conscience of our nation, held our great country to its highest ideals, and challenged all of us to see, and treat, each other as brothers and sisters. This weekend, as we honor Dr. King and the movement he came to represent, let us also recommit ourselves to the ongoing pursuit of his dream: a world of equality and justice for all.

Washington, D.C. —Today, President Obama will sign the surface transportation reauthorization bill into law. The “Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act” (FAST Act) is a bipartisan measure that will fund our nation’s public transit systems, passenger rail network, highways and bridges for the next five years. Overwhelming margins in the Senate and House of Representatives supported this vital legislation.
On November 13th, TWU 252 held their very first casino night to benefit our 252 Veterans. There was dinner, gambling for prizes, comedians and of course as you can see below we honored our veterans. Thank you to all who attended and help put this together lets make next year an even bigger success!
