TRUE MEANING OF 10-13

 

As we start the beginning of Passover and the coming of Easter, it is my hopes that this correspondence finds everyone well and safe.

 

I would like to commend our Chapter Presidents, Board Members and their chapter members during this coronavirus pandemic.  As I read various emails, social media and talk with our members, I say to myself what a great organization we are all a part of.  During these trying times I have seen our members step up  to the plate for their NYPD brothers and sisters. The Verrazano 10-13 delivering meals to Staten Island precincts; Chapter Executive Boards and their members, from all over the country, volunteering their time by shopping and helping our members and their families who have underlying health issues. These members are in danger of contracting this dangerous virus, and if they do, there is the possibility that some may not recover from this virus.

 

Please stay safe and remember, social distancing does not mean that we cannot help our brothers and sisters in any way possible.

 

On behalf of myself and my Executive Board, we hope that you and your families stay safe. We want to extend a special thank you to all of our members for showing the true meaning of 10-13.

 

Happy & Joyous Holidays.

 

Fraternally yours,

 

Frank Martarella

To All Presidents and Chapter Members:

As I am writing this letter, summer is coming to an end; fall and winter will soon be with us.  I hope that everyone had a safe and fun summer.  Last week the National NYCPD 10-13 Orgs. Inc. celebrated its 30th Annual Convention at the beautiful Villa Roma Resort; a great time was had by all.

I would like to thank all Chapter Presidents and members for their support, dedication and undying support of the National.  A special thank you goes out to my Executive Board.  I am very proud to have an Executive Board who I can rely and depend on for support and guidance.

As we all know times are changing and the attacks on NYPD active and retirees are becoming more frequent and blatant.  We are being criticized and not supported by some of our elected officials; starting with Mayor de Blasio. 

The New York 2020 legislation session will start January, 2020.  However, we are already visiting with key state senators and assembly members.  The National is aggressively active in communicating through letters, visits in educating legislators, and requesting legislation which protects or enhances our benefits.  COLA and Veterans’ Supplementation are given out of the Pension Fund.  This is not a cost factor to the tax payers.  These funds are well funded and protected by law, which is not so protected in other states.  There is no cost for the Health Protection Bill.

As we all know retirees, via our unions when they were active, negotiated for and earned benefits for their future, and sometimes gave up pay increases and other benefits as retirees. Not having the ability to vote or negotiate regarding their benefits, as per the Taylor Law, leaves us to look to our elected officials to protect the benefits that we fought for and earned.

The National is the most active group in legislation than any other NYC Police retiree group to date on these important issues.  We work very closely with President Patsy Noto of the Retired Sergeants Association which actively supports all NYCPD legislation.  We communicate closely regarding these issues.

With the support of chapter Presidents and members, through dues and raffles, it makes it possible to be actively involved in legislative issues, as well as to join the Alliance, which involves many other retiree groups.  The monies also help us maintain a PAC fund, supply buses for the April Lobby Day to attend other meetings, and speak with other retiree groups who share their concerns of these issues.  I can assure you that your National Executive Board will continue to be very active in the Albany legislative arena.

This is not an organization of titles and perks.  Each member of the Executive Board works very hard, and dedicates their time and efforts for you.  The past achievements and goals are because of the support of the chapters and their members.  This is what gives us the will to take the initiative to continue to work hard towards accomplishing our common goals.

Hope to see you at the 2020 Convention.

Fraternally,

Frank Martarella

Happy Thanksgiving

Good Morning

 

Happy Thanksgiving to my Executive Board, to all the National 10-13 Presidents, their Executive Board members, Chapter Members and their families.  Thank you for your continued support to the National NYCPD 10-13 Association.

 

Lets  also remember and pray for all our Military members who are keeping us safe around the world, and our fellow Police Officers, some of whom, are working today to keep us safe.  And let us not forget our fellow brothers and sisters who laid down their lives protecting us all and for all their widows and children. 

 

Fraternally

Frank
