BOWIE, MD -- Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) unveiled today his endorsement by the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC), which represents more than 270,000 postal workers in Maryland and across the country. For years, Congressman Hoyer has been working in Congress to prevent the U.S. Postal Service from facing insolvency, which could lead to thousands of job losses among those who carry our nation's mail. He pushed to secure funding in the Heroes Act earlier this month for the U.S. Postal Service as it becomes even more central to ensuring the safety and success of our federal elections, which are increasingly relying on mail-in ballots. Congressman Hoyer has also been one of the country's leading voices for better pay and benefits for those who serve in the civilian federal workforce.
"I am honored by the support of the National Association of Letter Carriers," Congressman Hoyer said. "These hard-working men and women play a critical role in our democracy and our economy, and I will continue to stand up for their right to organize for better pay and benefits. I'm proud to stand with them in their effort to secure the opportunities that make the American Dream possible and enable a secure place in our middle class for postal workers and their families."
“The Maryland State Association of Letter carriers is proud to endorse our friend, Leader Hoyer," Maryland State President Doreen Carter said. "For years, he has been a tireless champion of letter carriers and federal employees. We are proud to stand with him.”
The primary election for Maryland's Fifth Congressional District will take place on Tuesday, June 2, and ballots will be cast primarily by mail. Every registered voter will receive a ballot by mail from the state's Board of Elections, and they must be completed and returned with a postmark no later than 8:00pm on June 2 to be counted. No postage is necessary to return a completed ballot by mail.
